In this dark retelling, Hansel and Gretel live in the rural town of Brimstone, at the mercy of their selfish mother. Desiring to be free of the burden of caring for her of-age children, Mother plans to abandon them far from home. The twins find refuge at Ginger’s Diner, held captive by a vile witch, and realize there is only one way to escape, a way which will change their relationship forever.
