Description

Recall the Grimm Brothers’ moral tale of promises made and promises broken. A poor miller tries to impress the royal cousin by boasting untruthfully that his beautiful daughter can spin straw into gold. The girl is locked in a room with a spinning wheel and some straw to accomplish this task. A strange little man appears and entices the young maiden to promise him her first born child if he assists her. Later, he returns to claim the baby in fullfillment of their bargain, but is undone by his own ego.
