The story of Thumbelina centers on a lonely woman who had long wished to have a child she could love and care for. One day, after countless years of wishing, she found that her dreams had come true when the Princess Thumbelina grew from a flower. The woman loved her dearly, but soon after receiving her, little Thumbelina drifted away from the woman down a river when a water lily she was sitting atop broke off. This would be the start of a fantastic yet danger journey for the little girl, as Thumbelina went on the adventure of a lifetime trying to find her way back to the elderly woman, and her home! Thumbelina utilizes its modern mobile medium to enhance this classic fable while staying true to its story and messages.
