About the movie:
Sky can’t believe it! When she wakes up on the morning of her ninth birthday and moves her fingers, her cuddly toys start flying. Her older sisters Flame, Flora, and Marina are not surpised: they also developed magical abilities on their ninth birthday. When Flame, the oldest of the four, shows them a secret room in the basemant with a strange compass rose in it, something magical happens. The four sisters touch the compass rose and glittering elves dust flies through the room. Sky is thrilled and does not see why she should hide her powers from others. But Flame is determined to keep their powers a secret – not even their parents know!
Meanwhile, dark sorceress Glenda sets off for Cantrip Towers, the hometown of the sisters. She has felt the reawakened power of the compass rose, to which she is connected by a dark secret, and now claims its magical powers for herself. Glenda tries to drive a wedge between the sisters. Now Sky, Flame, Flora, and Marina really have to get it together – otherwise Cantrip Towers is in great danger!
