Adaptation of Barry Jonsberg’s bestseller about a 12-year-old girl who tries to bring joy back to her family after a tragic loss. Candice Phee is quirky, imaginative, and often unintentionally funny. Her mission in life is to spread joy wherever she goes. But ever since her younger sister died, her mother barely leaves her room, while her father hides behind a mountain of work. Witty and patient, Candice decides to bring back smiles to the faces of her sad, quarrelsome parents. She is aided by Douglas, her new classmate who is convinced he’s from another dimension. A fairytale world opens for them and they learn how to deal with painful loss with plenty of humour and empathy.
