What is "The Witches" about?

In 1968 Alabama, a young boy goes to live with his grandmother following the death of his parents in Chicago. Slowly, the boy gets cheered up with his grandmother buying him a pet mouse whom he names Daisy. One day, the boy goes to buy a box of nails to train Daisy and to build a house for her as well. The boy is approached by a witch (Penny Lisle) trying to lure him with a snake and a chocolate bar, but his grandmother calls him and the witch disappears.
After telling his grandmother about the encounter the boy learns that the witches are in fact real. She says a witch cursed her best friend Alice into spending the rest of her life as a chicken. The grandmother says that witches never leave once they find a child. Frantically, the boy and the grandmother decide to stay in a nearby hotel where her cousin Eston is the executive chef. While there, the grandmother tells the boy how to tell a witch from an ordinary woman: real witches have claws instead of fingernails which they hide by wearing gloves, are bald which they hide by wearing wigs that give them rashes, have square feet with no toes which they hide by wearing sensible shoes, have a purple tinge in their pupils and have a powerful sense of smell which they use to sniff out children.
The next day, the boy takes Daisy and a rope to go get some training done at a grand hall. As he walks there, he meets a gluttonous but friendly boy named Bruno, who gets pulled away by his mother. The boy goes into the grand hall alone. As he's getting ready to train Daisy, a group of witches led by their all-powerful leader, the Grand High Witch (Anne Hathaway), go into the grand hall; the boy hides under the stage and discovers that the Grand High Witch is planning to give the world's children a potion that can transform them into mice. The potion will be used in confectionary products in sweet shops and candy stores.
