A holiday gift like no other for the young Clara quickly becomes ruined when her jealous brother breaks it, so she no longer can play with it. Placing it under the Christmas tree the night of Christmas eve, Clara can only hope that she will awaken to it being repaired. During the middle of the night she tip toes down to get her prized gift when suddenly she notices the room filling with scurrying mice. Upon the clock striking midnight and Clara falling asleep, the magic of the night begins. Her beloved nutcracker is now battling it out in her living room with none other than the evil Mouse King. Noticing the struggle at hand, Clara steps in to help defend her nutcracker, ultimately saving the day turning him into a handsome prince. He then whisks Clara away into a magical land where the winter quickly turns into spring. It is there that Clara meets the Sugar Plum Fairy and all the other woodland creatures. Hearing of her bravery, the fairy entertains Clara with dances like she has never seen before. After the end of a breath-taking journey we are back with Clara in her living room as she sleeps with her broken nutcracker.
