Steeped in the romantic-era traditions, Giselle tells the tale of a young peasant girl who dies of a broken heart after discovering her lover is betrothed to another. When a group of supernatural women summon Giselle from her grave and target her lover for death, it is Giselle’s love that frees him from their grasp.
