A Film by Barbara Marheineke

Synopsis

ONCE UPON A TRUTH

We all grew up with the fairy tales of the Grimm Brothers. And we all know that fairy tales are not true. Or are they? When the two children of an ambitious journalist push their teacher into an oven because their mother called her a “witch, a storm of media indignation breaks loose. In an experiment, the mother explores what fairy tales can lead to. The search for truth…becomes insane.
