The Snow Queen tells the tale of two young friends, Kay and Gerda. Kay catches slivers of the Snow Queen’s shattered magic mirror in his eye and in his heart. Gradually, his character changes and his vision of the world becomes evil and twisted.
As Kay is spirited away to the Snow Queen’s palace in the far frozen north, eternal winter descends on the village. With the help of her trusty reindeer, Gerda searches the world over to find her friend.
This fantastic journey finally takes her to the Snow Queen’s Palace inhabited by her magical court of wolves, white foxes and sprites. Gerda’s love for Kay releases him from the spell, the slivers of mirror fall from his eye and heart and the Snow Queen’s curse of eternal winter is broken.
