What is the story?
A charming coming-of-age story, we follow the journey of Clara, as she embarks on an adventure that most of us could only dream of, battling giant rodents and meeting quite literally, her Prince Charming in the form of a wooden nutcracker doll, who magically comes alive at the stroke of midnight on Christmas morning. After succeeding against the evil Mouse army, they venture to a magical world filled with dancing snowflakes, sweets and flowers, all ruled over by the benevolent Snow Queen and the Sugar Plum Fairy.
