SYNOPSIS:

By Brian D. Taylor

This inspirational story about the power of forgiveness is delightfully fun and full of heart.  With plenty of great roles to go around, this fractured fairy tale explores how kindness and forgiveness can be shown to anyone, even those who have done terrible things.  Elizadora is an outcast who is horribly misunderstood by her fairy-tale classmates — Cinderella, Goldilocks, King Midas, a bunch of feuding elves, and more!  When they all seemingly do her wrong, she turns against them all.  Her hateful heart transforms her into the famous fairytale wicked witch, as one-by-one she plots against her former classmates with tricks and curses.  Unwilling to allow an evil witch to curse the entire kingdom, her former classmates form a witch hunt, but when they eventually find and recognize Elizadora, they do something she could have never expected…  they forgive her and ask that she forgive them in return.  Their simple act of love and kindness moves Elizadora to right all the wrongs and give up evil for good.
