When Borgia sends Don Vicente on a year-long quest, he leaves Bianca under the care -- so to speak -- of Lucrezia. She plots a dire fate for the young girl in the woods below the farm, but in the dark forest salvation can be found as well . .A lyrical work of stunning creative vision, Mirror mirror gives fresh life to the classic story of Snow White -- and has a truth and beauty all its own.
