Sihja is a charming and outrageous young fairy. Alfred is 11 years old and he’s feeling lonely and sensitive. These two unlikely friends quickly bond and enjoy fun in the city until dead birds begin to appear on the streets. At first, it looks like the smelly fertilizer factory and its director Lisbeth Spiderville could be responsible. However, when Sihja reveals her true fairy powers, people begin to fear her and blame her fairy magic. With a little help from Alfred, Sihja learns to master her superpowers and she helps Alfred to find the confidence to stand up for himself.
