To reverse a curse of childlessness, the neighbour-hood Witch gives the Baker and his Wife three days to find ingredients needed for the antidote spell. Along the way, they meet other locals including Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood and a bean-stalk-obsessed boy called Jack, all on similar quests to find the thing that will let them live "Happily Ever After". Everyone's wish comes true but when a Giantess arrives to avenge the death of her recently slain husband, life after "Happily Ever After" proves to be not quite so happy after all.
