When young Lillian's mother dies during childbirth, the father soon re-marries the well-intentioned Lady Claudia (Sigourney Weaver). However, Claudia's heart is ruled not by her husband (Sam Neill), but by an evil mirror with the power to make Claudia Queen over all living things...until they are dead. A failed attempt to murder young Lillian leaves her wandering lost in a deep dark forest where she comes across seven dwarfs--but wait, you think you know the rest of the story? Far from it...Handsome princes and dwarfs cannot always save the day.
This movie will prove once and for all that blood is thicker than water; and evil, like an apple, comes around.
