Something is terribly wrong with Grandma! She’s very sick and weak, but luckily for her, recovery is just a quest away! The teacher at the exclusive Fantasy Academy challenges her fairy tale character students to embark on a quest. While seeking the audience’s assistance throughout their journey there’s a lesson in helping others through much silliness and fun!
