Little Emmy Adams kisses a girl on the playground and is left feeling isolated and alone. The Grand High Council of Fairy Tale Rules and Standards led by Bernard (Julian Sands) sends her a hetero-normative fairy tale to set her down the 'right' path in life. With the help of fairy godmother and rogue fairy tale narrator, Hammond (David Anders), Emmy searches for herself amidst this musical fairytale.
A child at heart, Ali Scher has always found a way to infuse whimsy and fantasy into her work and life. Originally from Toronto, Ali began directing and acting in theater at a very young age. She went on to receive a degree in Theater and Literature from Smith College, transitioning to film after spending a summer as a research intern for the television show ER. She attended USC School of Cinematic Arts, where play is pursued with the utmost dedication and seriousness.
Last year Ali received the Directors Guild of America Jury Award for Best Woman Filmmaker of 2011. On her USC Thesis film, The Maiden and The Princess Ali had the opportunity to work with David Anders of Alias and Vampire Diaries, Julian Sands of Room With A View and Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and Broadway’s Megan Hilty of Smash. The film has played at over fifty festivals worldwide and won countless awards, including the 2012 USC Faculty Award for Best Directing as well as a Student Emmy.
