The reality TV show “Wish Upon a Star” grants people – and possibly animals!– their greatest wishes. To be a Prince, to kiss a Princess, to be rich or respected - or young again.
It is only when she meets a human sized talking fish that the show’s celebrity host, the Fairy Godmother, gets a glimpse of life beyond this constant grasping for more.
Half fairy tale morality story and half modern comedy, The Beanstalkers looks with humour at the greed and self involvement which causes us all to pursue our wishes.
The fish has its origins in The Fishermans Wife by the brothers Grimm.
