The witch, voiced by Gillian Anderson, is flying on her broomstick through the forest with her cat on board when they realize they have a limited amount of space on the broom. As luck would have it, they come across several animals who are willing to help them out.

The first animal they meet is a helpful but slightly nervous dog, voiced by Rob Brydon, who offers to help the witch, cat and accompanying broomstick, promising to find something in the forest to replace the broomstick with. The three travelers continue on their journey, and soon they meet with a fine-feathered bird, beautifully voiced by Sally Hawkins, who offers to be the witch's lookout and warns her about all the dangers ahead.

As the witches' broomstick takes flight once again, the next animal who offers to help the trio is a frog, voiced by Martin Clunes. The frog, eager to join the flight, suggests he can be useful in looking for the witch's hat, which has been blown away by the wind. Continuing on their journey, the witch, cat, dog, bird, and frog are then faced with an unexpected challenge, which puts them all in danger.
