This is an original one-hour ballet based on the story by Hans Christian Andersen about a girl no bigger than a thumb and her adventures. First, she is kidnapped by a toad family, then she is snatched by beetles, she takes refuge with a mouse only to be pursued by a mole and finally she is reunited with her mother and fairy prince.
