For some time, Minna and her father have been the only members of their tight-knit family. So when her father moves his fiancée and her daughter Jenny to their home in the countryside, Minna is understandably apprehensive. Despite Minna's best attempts to bond with her new step-sister, Jenny is a manipulative bully who's only kind when their parents are present. Minna is unable to convince her father of Jenny's hurtful behavior, so she resolves to fix the matter herself. One night Minna discovers dreambuilders, the creatures charged with constructing human dreams on elaborate theater stages. After learning how dreams are made, she embarks on a plan to alter Jenny's dreams. What starts as lighthearted mischief soon snowballs into a chain of events with increasingly dire consequences. When Minna's meddling goes too far, she has to enter the dream world to fix her mistakes before it's too late. This animated fantasy adventure features a blended family's struggle to bond and encourages us to look beyond superficial first impressions. (Dubbed in English) — R.R.
