Storyboard Text

  • Once upon a time in a quaint farming village, there lived a fair maiden and her father. One day her father was summoned by the king because he wanted to take the poor farmer's land. Out of desperation he formulated a lie and informed the king that his daughter could spin hay into gold and create powerful spells and potions. He wanted to see this for himself, so he ordered the father to bring his daughter the next day.
  • When the fair maiden arrived the next day, she was locked in a room and told to spin the hay into gold before the sun set. As she could not execute this, she started wailing and weeping. A little man came and assured her that he can fix her predicament, but for a price. She handed him a gold ring and with a snap of his fingers, the hay was turned to golden thread.
  • As the fair maiden saw the little man change the hay to gold, she assumed he was a skilled sorcerer, and asked him if they can conduct a deal to help her deceive the king. The meager man agreed under a certain condition, that she give him her first born child. The fair maiden agreed, and they swore that if anyone broke the spell, they would die a slow and miserable death.
  • After, the fair maiden is swiftly ushered into the palace garden where the king’s generals and fair brave knights were assembled. The king ordered her to form an Achilles heel so they are protected from harm. She didn't know how to do this, so she conjured up an excuse and informs the king that she needs two days to make her potion, and the king agrees.
  • When she returns home, she finds the old man at the doorstep of her house. She tells him about the potion she must make and he assured her that he will execute the king’s needs. The two days passed and the fair maiden prepares a bottle of ineffective wine infused with herbs for the king’s generals and knights to drink. The little man performs his magic and the maiden is saved.
  • The king was impressed with the woman's magic and calls her day after day to solve his kingdom's problems. The little man abides by their vow, until the king asks for the maiden’s hand in marriage. This was not part of the vow and she must marry him. The king asks nothing of his wife after marriage, and time passes and she forgets about the bargain she made with the little man.
