By the teaser animatic we introduce characters from “Bohemian forest” which is still in the film world not unveiled. Some of them we met in br. Grimm’s fairy tales, but there is big difference in interpretation. By the bohemian mythology no-one was ever lost – even the devil. There is not good and bad sides, … there is suggestion, understanding, solution and transformation in goodness and higher level. It is about deliverance not about killing the bad ones.
Elizabeth is a city girl whose life seems boring. She grows up alone with her careworn mom Natalie only, studying the first year of the high school where she is not much pleased to get to grips … with learning … or with friends. But this girl has such a great imagination, that usually dreary world sees all around her like a fairy tale. To let one’s hair down she travels in her fantasy in the form of spitfire ELIK into ancient times of lost kings and bohemian creatures that roam the woods and wait for their victims or deliverance. She just met three princes who want to marry rich princesses to save their Spring kingdom from ruins and to avoid to lord of darkness Hubert who wants to get their poor sister. But during such expeditions you can easily forget the time and troubles are in place.
The Inspector, Minister of the Finance just arrived and needs to let fired some students to obtain approval to close the entire school because the director is so kindhearted that students are excessively cheerful and happy. The school is supposed to be hard. Graduates PETER, JEROME and PHILIP are exemplary expelled just before the final graduation. In the eyes of Elizabeth seems frosted Minister to be a Winter Queen who sent princes by magic into deep forest to prevent them in the wedding. Brave Elik is allowed to be hired with the help of Hedwig in the service of Winter Queen to reveal her intentions. Unaware that Hedwig – school graduate from octave, under the guise of friendship, lured her into fraudulent voting of no confidence of the Director. Elizabeth is suddenly up a gum-tree.
Three graduates to make protest jumps into the swirl of the night city, as nothing had happened. Meanwhile it begins to freeze. The princes find themselves face to face with their own shadows. There have only one night to understand the fate of everyone to whom encountering: WHOOCALL – rowdy night watchman, STRYFLY – hostesses, FAIRIES – bar dancers, FEXTS – hungry homeless, WOLFHOUND – motorcyclists and owners of the nightclub, the WATTERGLEE – an astute banker and WILD PEOPLE in the form of fans at a concert. Guys get hard time, but they can be happy for the good guy Philip, who repeatedly alludes to the sassy MUSHROOM – a paperboy, which leads him to LUCIFER.
Lucifer – the Torchbearer turns cards of the fate for princes when he illuminates the path to the Autumn Witch – Minister of Health. She quickly finds a way to get students out of trouble. Just give them written excuses. Winter Queen is furious. But at this time all the others helps to princes, and even if the DEVIL had sent himself, Elik is timely there to warn them. Natalie’s mother had finally understood what her Elizabeth revealed. Although the city is frozen, but bohemian friends help students get to school on time. Graduation is here … last remaining minutes to marriage – 4 kisses – four weddings. All students passed their tests successfully and the director – Summer King may remain in his office. And a Winter Queen? Her heart must eventually unbend when the lord of darkness Hubert appears. To everyone is now clear that he has found immediate favor, which it does exceedingly well. So the fifth wedding may happen as well.
