Synopsis
This version of The Snow Queen is a fairy tale in seven stories. It begins with an evil magician, who creates a mirror with the magic power of taking anything good and shrinking it to next to nothing. Beautiful landscapes look like deserted car parks. Nice people become nasty. Gerda finds the mirror and accidentally drops it, shattering it into a million pieces. Each little piece of the mirror held the same power as the full magic mirror. Unfortunately, Gerda’s best friend Kai gets a piece of the mirror stuck in his eye and in his hear, and becomes cruel. When Kai meets the snow queen he is in awe. She kisses him, and they disappear into the sky together.

Gerda then sets out to find and rescue her dear friend Kai. Along the way she encounters interesting folks like the Old Woman and the garden that makes days pass endlessly, a funny Crow, a dangerous but helpful Robber Girl, and a wise Inuit Woman. In the end, with the help of the resources and wisdom of the characters she met, Gerda finds Kai, and with her tears she releases the evil shards of mirror from him. The Snow Queen is then gone forever. This is Hans Christian Andersen at his mythical best.
