Plot summary

What is The Witches movie plot?

Here is a short review of "The Witches" movie plot summary.

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, Charlie 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 caramel, but the grandmother calls him and the witch disappears.
After telling the 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, they decide to stay in a nearby hotel where her cousin Eston is the executive chef. While there, 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. He then goes into the grand hall, thinking that he will be 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, which will be used in confectionery products that can transform the children into mice. The Grand High Witch waits for Bruno to arrive, for whom she gave a chocolate bar previously laced with the potion. After Bruno arrives, he turns into a mouse and enters the vent where the boy and Daisy are hiding. The Grand High Witch forcibly transforms the boy into a mice before they escape.
