Synopsis

Three stories of magic and the macabre are told: In the kingdom of Darkwood, the King and his Queen attempt to conceive a child through very unusual means. Meanwhile in Highhills, the none-too-bright monarch marries off his daughter to a brutal ogre while developing a strange obsession with breeding a giant flea. And the sex-obsessed crown of Strongcliff is in for a shock when the woman he falls in love with is not quite what she seems. Based on the collection of fairy tales "Lo cunto de li cunti" by 17th-century folklorist Giambattista Basile.
