Gillian Holroyd, a lively free spirit, is unlucky in love and restless in her life. She also happens to be a witch. So when she watches the love of her life, Shep Henderson, get engaged to her college rival, she uses every magical trick up her sleeve to stop the impending wedding. The mundane meet the miraculous in this bewitching romantic comedy set against the stylish backdrop of mid-1950s Manhattan.
