Summary:
At the start of World War II, 14-year-old Carrie and her younger brother Nick are separated from their mother and evacuated from war-torn London to a rural village in Wales. Upon their arrival, they are assigned to live with a troubled family—the puritanical shopkeeper Mr. Evans, a widower, and his spinster sister, a timid woman named Lou.

While Lou is thrilled to lavish attention on the children, Mr. Evans remains cold and distant. But Carrie and Nick's fortunes take a turn for the better when they're sent to fetch a Christmas goose from mysterious Druid's Bottom— a manor house occupied by a self-professed witch named Hepzibah and Mr. Evans's ethereal, estranged sister, Mrs. Gotobed.

Filled with magical adventures and first love, this heartfelt and faithful adaptation of Nina Bawden's beloved novel stars Alun Armstrong (Bleak House), Lesley Sharp (The Full Monty), Pauline Quirke (David Copperfield), Geraldine McEwan (Miss Marple), and Keeley Fawcett (At Home with the Braithwaites) as Carrie.
