Synopsis:

A reinvention of the Rumplestiltskin story — one spinner uses a stolen wheel, crippling his leg as he makes straw into a glittering dress for his beloved, whom he loses. A second spinner named Saskia becomes a master spinner — until she too is forced to spin straw into gold. When they meet, a new tale must be spun.

Synopsis:

Have you ever wondered just what was going on when that odd little man with the long name stepped up and volunteered to spin straw into gold for the millers daughter? If you stop and think about it, there are some very peculiar components to the story.
