WILLIAM AND THE WITCH’S RIDDLE

Synopsis:

A charming re-imagination of Sleeping Beauty in which a boy must solve a witch’s riddle in order to save his family and end a centuries-long curse.

William and his little brother, Pinch, have been left alone ever since their mother disappeared and their father went to look for her. When William is visited by a witch named Morga, it seems their lives might be in danger unless they help the witch solve a riddle and find a dark family heirloom.

William sets out on a quest into the heart of the Old Forest. There his mother rests in the sleep of an ancient curse, her only companions an odd fellow who wakes up a different size every day and a tiny dragon.
