Scarlett longed to be a singer and Simon yearned to travel the world. One day, they stumbled upon a silver dollar that the witch had lost. In exchange for its return to her, the witch granted them their wishes. But be careful what you wish for, because these wishes came with an evil spell attaches. . . .
