As the result of the curse of a once-beautiful witch (Meryl Streep), a baker (James Corden) and his wife (Emily Blunt) are childless. In order to help the witch reverse the spell and restore her beauty, they venture into the forest to find these ingredients: a milk-white cow, hair as yellow as corn, a blood-red cape, and a slipper of gold. During their journey, they meet Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, and Jack; each is on a quest to fulfill a different wish.
