Sabrina and Daphne's parent had disappeared a year ago. Since then, the sisters had been in and out of foster homes, most of which were abusive in one form or another. When they learn that they are being sent to live with their grandmother, whom they believe to be dead. Sabrina's doubt about the old woman increases when she tells them that they are descendants of the Brothers Grimm, and that the fairy tales are real.
