Synopsis by Cammila Collar
This heartwarming family film from Japan centers around a 13-year old girl named Mai. Suffering from intense asthma, and even more intense anxiety, Mai is sent to live with her English-born grandmother in the country. The mysterious old woman is thought by many to be a witch, so Mai asks her to teach her secrets of magic. The grandmother agrees and the two set off on a series of educational adventures, but soon it becomes clear that the lessons Mai is learning from her grandmother require no sorcery -- just a little common sense.
