Overview

Author Nina Bawden's beloved novel springs to life as the story of a fourteen-year-old girl and her younger brother forced to separate from their mother and reside with a troubled family at the onset of World War II comes to the screen in a Masterpiece Theater presentation starring Alun Armstrong, Lesley Sharp, and Keeley Fawcett. As the bombs begin to fall in war-torn London, frightened Carrie (Fawcett) and her younger brother Nick face an uncertain future when, after being torn from their mother in the chaos, they are forced to relocate to the rural village of Wales. Assigned to live with widowed, puritanical shopkeeper Mr. Evans and his timid, spinster sister Lou, the children attempt to make the best of their situation while pondering the unknown fate of their absent mother. Their situation complicated by the seeming indifference of the distant Mr. Evans, Carrie and Nick take solace in their friendship with the kindly Lou before they are asked to fetch a Christmas goose from the nearby Druid's Bottom. A mysterious manor occupied by Mr. Evans' estranged sister Mrs. Gotobed and the self-professed witch Hepzibah, Druid's Bottom marks the beginning of a magical journey in which Carrie and Nick will learn just what it really means to never lose faith even when all seems that all hope is lost.
