A dark fairy-tale retelling of "The Twelve Princesses".
He’s haunted by nightmares.
She’s hiding behind her smile.
A cursed melody dooms them both.
Ever since returning from the war, Jonas has been plagued by nightmares. When he meets the vivacious dancer Sophie, he’s drawn to her like a moth to a flame. Her laughter alone banishes the terrors of his dreams. But behind that smile lies a secret.
Every night, Sophie follows an irresistible melody into the night, only to return in the morning exhausted, feverish, and with her shoes broken a little more. Worried, Jonas sets out to solve the mystery of her midnight dances. But the intoxicating nightmare he slips into may just be darker than the ones that haunt him.
The award-winning dark fairy-tale retelling of Grimm’s “The Twelve Dancing Princesses”.
This is a translation of “Im Bann der zertanzten Schuhe” (Release date: 2017)
