The Fairy Goose tells the story of a scrawny, sickly gosling that unexpectedly draws the admiration of villagers, who come to believe it is a fairy. Trouble ensues between its owner, an elderly woman, and a local priest who condemns the goose as an idol. Eventually, the goose dies and the old woman lays a curse.
