The seven deadly sins writhe in the forest, consuming anyone who crosses their paths. Lust and Sadness walk among us, tempting the weak of heart. A young girl hides amongst the ashes. Timberlake Wertenbaker's The Ash Girl, inspired by the Grimm fairy tale, is very different from the story you remember. Ash Girl must fight through the fires to find her happy ending in this world of fairies in the mirror, brave field mice, and stepmothers with only the best of intentions.
