All Clara (Mackenzie Foy) needs is a key - a stand-out key that will open a container that holds an inestimable blessing from her late mother. A brilliant string, exhibited to her at guardian Drosselmeyer's (Morgan Freeman) yearly occasion party, drives her to the pined for key, which instantly vanishes into a bizarre and strange parallel world. It's there that Clara experiences a warrior named Phillip (Jayden Fowora-Knight), a posse of mice and the officials who direct three Realms: Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers and Land of Sweets. Clara and Phillip must overcome the foreboding Fourth Realm, home to the dictator Mother Ginger (Helen Mirren), to recover Clara's vital and ideally return agreement to the insecure world.
