Wild Swans


Klasický pohádkový příběh o statečnosti.


Severní království postihne mor a zabije královnu, matku malé Elizy a jejích jedenácti bratrů. Když se jejich otec znovu ožení, jejich brilantní a „neobvyklá“ nevlastní matka se stává posedlá tím, že hledá lék na epidemii a chrání svou novou rodinu tak, že se rozhodne začarovat chlapce na labutě, aby mohli odletět. Elizu pošle do vzdálenější vesnice, které se epidemie vyhnula. O několik let později, těsně předtím, než sama podlehne, královna lék na nákazu objeví. Království se ocitá v chaosu a je na mladé Elize, aby našla své bratry, změnila královské kouzlo, vrátila se domů a vyléčila mor a požádala o její místo v království!
