The little witch is only 127-years-old, so just a youngster to the big witches. Despite being forbidden, she celebrates the Dance of the Witches on the Blocksberg mountain. As punishment, she has one year to learn the big book of spells by heart, and then her fate will be decided. Determined to be the best witch she can, she gets down to work, supported by her talking raven, Abraxas. At first reluctantly and then increasingly, she discovers helping people instead of annoying them with pranks makes her feel good. But the big witches, especially the scary weather witch Rumpumpel, are suspicious. For them, the last thing about being a really good witch is good deeds. And this puts the little witch in a terrible dilemma when it comes to her final test.
