In this animated fairytale, a cold and calculating evil sorceress casts a fatal spell on a young infant. When her plans are foiled, she sends an army of pig-faced minions and a pet bird to search for the missing princess. Later, the wicked woman uses her powers to create obstacles for her opponent, like thorn bushes and a fire. As well, she turns herself into a dragon before fighting. A young man is locked in a dungeon, shot at with arrows and narrowly escapes being hit with falling rocks and boiling water. Characters find themselves in peril and one is put into a magical trance. Some swordplay is shown and an animal is stabbed (a little blood is depicted). In a comedic fashion, two men are portrayed becoming drunk during a series of toasts, which leads to name-calling and the threat of a duel. Another character passes out after drinking too much alcohol. Characters kiss.
