Things are getting a bit boring in Calabria. Sure Strega Nona, the beloved Grandma Witch, has cures for warts and headaches, but it takes too long because she uses old-fashioned potions and magic. So when her friend Strega Amelia comes over the mountain for a visit with her latest modern gadgets and offering sweets and cappuccino the people of Calabria, everyone ditches Strega Nona. Looks like Strega Nona has met her match! But with the ‘help’ of Big Anthony, disaster for Strega Amelia can’t be far behind!
