This action film revolves around the adventures of Jake and Will Grimm, con artists who travel from village to village in 19th century Germany pretending to protect townsfolk from enchanted creatures and performing exorcisms to make money. Everything changes when they arrive at the village of Marbaden, where several little girls have vanished, and the two brothers must face real magical beings. As a tribute to the true Brothers Grimm, this film is full of allusions to classic fairy tales  like Cinderella and Hansel and Gretel.
