Four children, Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy are sent to the country side because of air raids in London, during World War II. On the first day, it rains and while they are playing hide and seek indoors, Lucy hides in an old wardrobe. There she finds her way to NARNIA, which is under the spell of the evil white witch and it is always winter.
The witch has been in NARNIA for many years and it has been foretold that sons of ADAM and daughters of EVE will break this spell. So the White Witch makes sure that every human who comes to NARNIA is turned to stone.
Lucy escapes and slips back to her world. Her brothers and sister do not believe her story. The children go back to NARNIA to find it just as Lucy had described.
Mr. Beaver keeps them safe from the White Witch’s secret police. They are betrayed by Edmund and find out that only ASLAN the LION can protect them. The children join ASLAN to defeat the White Witch and winter in NARNIA.
