What is the movie Gretel and Hansel about?
If you have read the fairy tale, then you know how the story progresses. It’s a story of two children who got abandoned in the woods by their parents. Both the kids were left to starve and die as their parents left them because of fewer food resources for the whole family.
Both of them went on a hunt for shelter and food and coming across a shady remote old house. The house smelled of sweet dishes and desserts, which attracted them as they were starving.
As the story goes on, we get to know that an old witch owns the creepy house — an evil witch with bad intentions, who want to feed off of the kids.
