Synopsis

Fantasy adventure. School student Meg Murry believes that her physicist father is still alive, though he disappeared without trace four years ago. One night, three celestial messengers (named Mrs Which, Mrs Who and Mrs Whatsit) visit Meg, her brother Charles Wallace and their friend Calvin, to inform them that Meg's father is indeed still alive, but in danger. He had invented the tesseract, a means of moving through 'wrinkles' in time and space, to cross the universe and travel through time in an instant, but a great evil has now entered the universe and so they set off on a journey through fantastical worlds in a bid to save the universe from doom, and to rescue Meg's father.
