The Enchanted Quill Fairy Tale
A troubled young woman seeking answers about her dark past discovers a magic software app that allows her to make wishes comes true, but at a price - each wish costs her a fraction of her soul.

This is based on a 150 year old Fairy Tale by Franz Xaver von Schönwerth and was only recently discovered among a treasure trove of lost fairy tales.

The script is a modern day adaption which focuses heavily on horror elements. It follows a troubled woman who discovers a magic application on the internet which grants wishes. The catch – each wish uses up a small percentage of her soul.

She uses it to kidnap and confront three men from her dark, disturbed past. Seeking answers she compels the men to speak the truth but events soon spiral out of control as her soul becomes more and more corrupted and the quest for closure becomes an unquenchable thirst for revenge.
