A slightly spooky, cheerful and original fairy tale combines feature film elements with puppet animation and 3D effects. Woodham is a small village the war with Turks swept through some years ago. The goodhearted wood nymphs were then asked for help, but as it involved doing good and evil at the same time, they were punished and Woodland fell under a spell. The message of the tale is that evil, committed with good intention, should not be defeated by brute force but, on the contrary, with intellect, heart and courage, and also by admitting your negative traits to yourself and to the people around you. The best way to combat evil is to turn it to good.
