All Clara (MacKenzie Foy) wants for a Christmas is a key. A special key that will unlock a priceless gift left to her by her mother. Arriving at her godfather Drosselmeyer’s (Morgan Freeman) annual holiday party, Clara finds herself lost in a fantastical parallel universe where she meets a dashing young soldier named Phillip (Jayden Fowora-Knight) and encounters the nefarious and tyrannical Mother Ginger (Helen Mirren). With the only hope of returning to her home, Clara joins forces with Phillip and the Sugar Plum Fairy (Keira Knightly) to save this fantastical realm and find her special key….before it’s too late.
