The film is a loose adaptation of the fairy tale "Der Zwerg Nase" (German for "The Dwarf [called] Nose") written by Wilhelm Hauff.
Jacob, the son of a shoemaker, refuses to do a favour for an evil witch. In retaliation, she takes away seven years of his life and turns him into an ugly dwarf. At the same time the King's daughter Princess Greta is turned into a goose by the same witch after she discovers her in her father's library stealing a spell which will help her rule the kingdom. Jacob and Greta meet and plan to overthrow the witch and get back to their families and true forms.
