Der Alte Holzsammler - The Old Wood Gatherer
Once upon a time in the far off Kingdom of Arbeiterklasse or "the Working class" resides a small principality called the Duchy of Miser which is mercilessly ruled by a greedy and highly despicable duke, Herzog Otto the Ruthless. The evil duke has sinisterly decided to proclaim a ducal law that all his loyal subjects would work seven days a week from sun-up to sun down even on the Sabbath day and rid his duchy of all non-productive religious practices. On one fine autumn morning there once lived an old wood gatherer named Hans Holtzmann in the forest countryside near the small hamlet of Vertvoll. Hans awoke from his peaceful night's slumber so to start off his day by fetching the kindling wood and sell it to the bakers when he suddenly noticed that he was walking backwards...This spiritually-based fairy tale depicts all the mystical styles that even the Grimm Brother's could have ever dreamt up in their time...
