Five years after their scientist father had gone missing; Meg Murray and her younger adoptive brother Charles Wallace are visited by the mysterious Mrs Whatsit who tells them that the “tesseract” – a means of teleportation which their father was researching – is real and that their father likely went missing because of it. Joined by Mrs Whatsit’s two other companions, Mrs Who and Mrs Which, as well as Meg’s friend Calvin, the children are taken on a spectacular journey across entire star system to distant planets. But all is not well on these alien planets as a malevolent shadowy force known as “The IT” silently plots its domination of the universe, engulfing all in its path.
