Synopsis
Hansel and Gretel are sent into the forest by their mother to gather berries for dinner. After losing their way, they spend the night in the forest, guarded by 14 night angels. The next day they find the gingerbread house of Rosina the witch. She captures Hansel to fatten him up and make him part of the gingerbread hedge. Gretel rescues Hansel and the pair use a log to knock the witch into her stove, which then explodes. The house and the witch disappear and the children who were part of the hedge turn back into their original forms.
