Once upon a time, deep in the middle of a forest, stood an old castle. If a young girl wandered too near the castle walls, the witch turned her into a bird, and locked her in a cage inside the castle. But true love triumphs over evil enchantment in this story of one young couple, the beautiful Jorinda and Jorindel, the shepherd boy who loves her, who break free of the witch's spell and live happily ever after.
