A selfish couple come up with an awful plan to lose their children, Hansel and Gretel, in the woods. The starving and tired children find a cottage made of every scrumptious treat imaginable. The sweet old owner invites them in for delicious food and a place to sleep. But when their room turns out to be a locked cage, Hansel and Gretel are suddenly aware of her true intentions. With the unexpected appearance of a social worker, will the children finally be free of these mad mad grown-ups?
