This reworking of Little Red Riding Hood and werewolf mythology explores the horror and sexuality of fairytales.
In a young woman's dream, her kindly grandmother warns her of the dangers that lurk in the dark forest -- especially men whose eyebrows meet, for on nights with a full moon they transform into horrible beasts. Thereafter the girl weaves a series of complex fantasies revealing her confusion about men, sexuality and desire.
