Essie is trapped in her own mind. After being held hostage for most of her childhood years, she has returned a broken shell of her former self. Now housed in a dystopic insane asylum, the teen girl recounts stories of her past and present, visually imagined as a series of macabre fairy tales. The series uses Essie's stories as the central story-line, as her mind weaves beautiful but disturbing images that interplay with the spoken narrative.
