The youngest, however, has brought home a frog he has met in the forest, much to his family's chagrin. Soon, however, they learn that the frog is really the lovely and noble Vassilisa, who has been put under a curse by the evil Gornych the Serpent when she angered his by refusing his marriage proposal. This is a charming tale about the power of love told through stunning visuals and costumes, chock full of monsters, witches, and even a three-headed dragon».
