Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka

This is a slightly uneven presentation of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale about two evil princes, their pure-hearted brother, and a dying king. As the three siblings stand vigil by their father's bedside, they agree that they must go and look for the Magic Fountain, the fountain of life that will restore their father to good health. Their separate quests are filled with adventures involving captivating characters like a sorcerer-dwarf and beautiful maidens and most of all, a charming princess who lives in the castle that harbors the Magic Fountain. The good-hearted brother is betrayed as being villainous by his nasty siblings but even their treachery cannot overcome the forces of good and in the end, all is resolved to the benefit of everyone concerned, even the king.
