Grimm Fairy Tales continues to rewrite history when the story of the good and humble King Midas is retold in horrifying fashion. The king makes a wish to appease his daughter's greed only to find that the best intentions are not always paved with gold. In a shocking and twisted case of reversal of fortune, the king learns that while the gold piles high, true treasure is where the heart lies and that all the riches in the world mean nothing if the price you pay is the one thing you care about most.
In Grimm Fairy Tales, the story of King Midas is told against the backdrop of a modern hitman, that kills to make a living for his daughter. The story follows the relatively poor king who is given the ability to turn anything he touches into gold which works well until he touches his daughter. In the modern story the hitman is tied up as he talks with Mercy Dante, the daughter of a former hit. She informs him that she will kill his daughter, Trisha Franks, which she does.
