The Fisherman and His Wife
One day, a poor fisherman catches and then frees an enchanted flounder who is able to grant any wish imaginable. A simple man without pretensions, the fisherman would rather leave well enough alone. But his wife's greed forces the fisherman to return to the flounder time after time until it is too late. A thought provoking tale from the Brothers Grimm.
