This Girl Laughs, This Girl Cries, This Girl Does Nothing follows three young sisters who are left in a forest by their woodcutter father and forced to find their own way in the world. From this fairytale beginning, three resolutions are made — one sister walks one way to find purpose, one the other to find adventure, and the third stays right where she is to create a home.
