Something strange is coming to pass in the Gardens of King Midas. Time stands still, people are petrified and life’s light dims down as the clock’s hands turn back to 1912. Midas’s curse threatens Edessa with obliteration and a return to point zero. The Giant, who has slept at the roots of Edessa’s Rock for centuries, has awoken and wants vengeance for the ingratitude of men. The only ray of light is a girl from the future, Margarita, who comes from 2012 and is appointed the task of saving her homeland by seeking the Karkaya Witch and her spell in the primeval Wonderwood. Our heroine will gain the radiant coin of Macedonia and with it, she will cross the Black Lake, the Underworld and the White Peak and confront the Grim Reaper, Narcissus and the Sphinx. But can a place be saved, when the people that inhabit it prefer to remain indifferent?
This fairytale is inspired by the liberation of Edessa one hundred years ago; a photographic book that links folk culture with contemporary artistic aestheticism. Traditional notions and mythological allegories are depicted in Wonderwood and unravel a commandment of three prophecies, a path through three worlds, a story of magic.
