Publisher's Summary

Like Terry Gilliam at his most surreal, directing a reimagination of Hansel and Gretel.

After 10 years, Hansel Nothing returns to his boyhood home, unable to remember anything that has happened to him since he left. Back home, he stays in Zerostrata, a treehouse in the backyard. The Nothing family is as dysfunctional and depressed as ever. His mother keeps a cat on her head and incessantly munches prescription medication. His father has left the house to pursue a career as a superhero. His brother wants to be the dad's superhero sidekick and thinks he can fly.

Hansel's life is changed forever when he meets Gretel, a free-spirited woman who runs naked through the woods every night. She teaches him about a world of magic and beauty. They travel to the moon together via a rope ladder, sail back to Earth in an air balloon, and wander through a graveyard that allows them to view the dreams of the dead all while trying to escape Gretel's evil Grandmother.

The Nothing family is quite the interesting group

The Nothing family are quite the interesting group of characters. Bear traps, superheroes, streaking in the rain, smiley sticker pasties, graveyard dreams, salad pirates, trampolines and purple smoking cats. But wait…there’s more. A lot more crazy train a rollin’ in this one. Prunty is a strange cat. Dude has some serious skills to pull off the works he pumps out. In theory they should be a wreck, but somehow they aren’t. In fact, they are pretty great. Including this one. Nicely done and super weird as the Prunty usual.
