Jaws will drop as one amazing feat after another defies gravity and awakens possibility while exploring the rhythm and roots of Ethiopia.

This is not your usual “Once Upon a Time.” Classic? Two fabulous, whip-smart, super-fast actors play Snow White, the huntsman, the prince, and all seven dwarves! Expect the unexpected in this fabulous fairy tale with a (spoiler alert) you-won’t-see-it-coming twist.
