In this completely nonsensical but utterly enchanting version of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale, a moral evolves to prove you do not have to be big to be strong.

Two maiden queens, Eulalia and Ohlalia, take to their smelling salts when warned of the giant's approach. But the little tailor undertakes to save the kingdom by using his wits.

The tailor does indeed win the first contest, but this only sends the giant lumbering home to fetch his big brother in an effort to trap the tailor. The two incongruous, farcical giants then masquerade in laces and fans as the two queens, but succeed only in trapping themselves.
