When short, shy 11-year-old Angel finds a magical wishing clock, she sees it as an opportunity to transform her life - with unexpected consequences.
Angel is a shy, clumsy girl who can't say no to anything. On her way home one day, something odd happens: she trips, braces herself for a rough landing, but instead finds herself floating in a beautiful soap bubble. When the bubble pops, leaving Angel dazed on the ground, she finds a beautiful watch beside her. It is not long before she discovers that the watch is very special: it makes all her wishes come true! Suddenly, Angel is incredibly popular, but will her new life really make her happy?
