Adrian Pang and Cultural Medallion winner Milenko Prvacki team up to write Hansel and Girl Girl, the tale of two siblings sent on an errand by their unloving stepmother who hopes they get lost and never return. Along the way they chance upon a candy store run by a curious looking Peranakan lady sporting huge beehive hair and ruby red lips...what will happen to them?
