Earwig and the Witch – Netflix Trailer
Synopsis of the film
Orphanages are horrible places. But Earwig loves St. Morwald because, since she was left still in diapers at the institute’s entrance, everyone does exactly what he wants. Things change the day a creepy couple (struggling to appear normal) decide to adopt her. Earwig is thus catapulted into the mysterious home of Bella Yaga and Mandrake, among secret rooms, potions and books of magic, and it will not take long to discover that her new ‘mother’ is a witch, with all the consequences that derive from it! But thanks to his intelligence and the invaluable help of Thomas, a talking cat, Earwig will find a way to gain respect. A little story of great courage, which teaches you never to break down, even when everything seems to take the wrong turn.
