Hannah & Gretchen are two modern teenagers with very busy parents and an annoying little sister. Like most teenagers, they think they have it all figured out. But when their mother grounds them for going to the school dance instead of watching their young sister, they decide to run away into the forest. Not realizing it is a Magical Forest, teeming with all sorts of different creatures, their decision leads to troubles, adventures, and new friends as well as important choices ahead. Manipulated by The Trickster, a powerful mischievous character, and a well meaning but greedy Candy Store Owner, they lose each other in the forest maze, and must find their way home. Aided by the friends they’ve made along the way, including a Pond Fairy, a Woodland Fairy and her tiny woodland creatures, and the Little Riding Hoods (Red, Purple and Blue) who are also running from a big bad Wolf, the girls learn everyone is running from something and it’s best to face your problems one step at a time!
