Synopsis

A dark version of the classic Grimm Brothers' fairy tale, the story of Snow White set in Germany's Black Forest, circa 1493. Fair young Lilli's problems begin when her loving, widowed father marries the striking Claudia Alvise, a noblewoman who takes her direction from a dressing mirror that reflects her deep, dark soul. Beauty yields rivalry, rivalry yields treachery, and before treachery gets its clutches on Lilli, she's forced to flee for the care of seven friendly forest dwellers--they're not dwarves, but a band of amiable social outcasts who are happy to have Lilli for a guest. But Claudia remains in hot pursuit.
