New couple Alice (Patton) and David (Goode) take their less than enthusiastic children on a family holiday in a Cornwall cottage to meet each other for the first time. The holiday takes an unexpected turn when the kids discover a magical (and very grumpy!) Psammead (Caine) on the local beach, a creature with the power to grant wishes. They also meet local oddball Tristan (Brand), who wants to capture the Psammead for his own gain. The ensuing adventure brings the new siblings together and teaches them to accept their parents new found happiness.
