The open secret of the foundling prince
A true story of an innocent boy imprisoned in a dark cell for most of his childhood. In a journey through darkness to light, this tale explores what it means to be human. In May of 1828, a strange boy appeared on the streets of Nuremburg, barely able to stand, walk or speak. In Kaspar Hauser: The Open Secret of the Foundling Prince, historical facts and characters mix with a supernatural tale of a golden house, a wicked stepmother, and a boy kept in a dark cellar for most of his childhood. Who was he? And why does his story still affect us?
Created as an epic fairytale with historical interludes, this story includes inspiring spiritual pictures as well as the latest scientific research about one of 19th Century Europe’s most compelling figures.
