When the miller Mehlsack raves about his daughter Marie and tells him that she can spin straw into gold, the ruler invites the young lady to his castle straightaway, in order to see for himself if her extraordinary talents are for real. In a state of despair, Marie goes to the castle and is put into a room full of straw. She is expected to spin all of the straw into gold by the next morning. Rumpelstiltskin, the dwarfed creature from the woods is her only hope. He hurries willingly to her aid, but the payment that he requests for his help puts the miller's daughter in a state of deep sorrow?».
