The Wild Girl interweaves the true story of Dortchen Wild, the girl who loved Wilhelm Grimm, with the fairytales she told him as they grew up together in war-stricken Germany. A beautiful and dramatic love story, Dortchen Wild was the source and muse for many of the Grimm Brother's compelling fairytales such as Rumpelstiltskin and Hansel & Gretel. As Napoleon's war rages on, the Wild family and the Grimms battle poverty, ill health and the loss of loved ones, bound together by the magical fairytales they created and that still resonate today
