    • Synopsis
    • Woodham is a small village, through which a war with a Turk swept some years ago. The powers of good were asked for assistance, in good faith, but unfortunately this help comprised of the performance of the evil of another, which was met with a backlash and brought misfortune on the village … and now its time to redress this situation. The theme of the fairytale is the battle between good and evil – although this time in a different guise. This is evil caused in good faith by the actions of positive heroes. The central idea to be conveyed is that this type of evil cannot be defeated by brute force (as is, unfortunately, often served up to children), but, on the contrary, with intellect, heart and courage, and by also admitting to oneself and to the people around you your negative traits. The best way to combat evil is to turn it around.
