All Clara wants is a key - a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift from her mother. A golden thread, presented to her at godfather Drosselmeyer's annual holiday party, leads her to the coveted key, which promptly disappears into a strange and mysterious parallel world. It's there that Clara encounters a soldier named Phillip (, a gang of mice and the regents who preside over three Realms: Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers and Land of Sweets. Clara and Phillip must brave the ominous Fourth Realm, home to Mother Ginger, to retrieve Clara's key and hopefully return harmony to the unstable world.
