Engel is a shy and clumsy girl who likes to be at home. It feels safe there, with her bright parents, her sweet cat Saturnus and her crazy uncle Tobias. One day, something odd happens. She trips and expects to take a bad fall, but suddenly she is floating inside a beautiful soap bubble. When it bursts, she finds a wishing clock next to her on the floor. Now, all of her wishes come true! Engel is suddenly immensely popular, but does this make her happy? Adapted from the children’s book Isa Hoes wrote along with her ten-year-old daughter Vlinder.
