The Golden Apple is a fantasy animated series, inspired by Eastern European mythology and folklore.
The story takes place in a vast mountain world, where the fogs come out of the hair of the powerful Zmei spirits, and the personified seasons walk the great forests. It is an epic Balkan fantasy world in which people use magic bells to battle the nightmares – huge shape shifters that feed on human suffering, but also a world in which the song of a Samodiva nymph can be both the most blessed of gifts and the most hated of curses.
Although it is based in an exotic fantasy setting, the narrative of the show will deal with contemporary issues, with which the modern viewer can easily associate – it is a coming of age story, set in a complicated fantasy world faced with climate change, the effects of uncontrolled industrialisation, xenophobia, social exclusion, racism and prolonged conflict.
Each season will consist of 24 episodes, 24 minutes each. It is an animated prime-time adventure epic, in which children will like the action-adventure element, and older audiences will enjoy the exotic setting and contemporary themes of the show. Each episode of the show follows a continuing narrative, which deals with several groups on their journey towards the apple.
