Abe's life at boarding school changes for ever when he magically sets a whole team of 11-year-old footballers free from the 1942 team photograph. Still boys at heart, but now with the appearance of 50-year-old men, they are terrified of the headmistress, the witch who trapped them in the photograph 40 years before. An exciting chase ensues, as Abe and the headmistress's daughter, Alicia, try to save the footballers and get away from the pursuing headmistress and her pack of witch sisters.
