Synopsis

MirrorMask is the story of Helena, who juggles and sells popcorn at her family’s circus. After quarrelling with her parents over her longing to run away and join real life, her mother falls ill, and Helena is convinced it’s all her fault. One night, without warning, she finds herself drawn into a fantastical world far beyond wonder; a world where all the windows reveal her own room now occupied by an angry, badly behaved version of herself.

Things in Helena’s new world are not going well at all. The White Queen has fallen into an unbreakable slumber, and the Black Queen’s shadows are spreading over the land, destroying the balance between light and dark.  And so Helena embarks on a desperate quest to win back her real life while rescuing a realm from the devouring forces of chaos.

For all who believe in the glorious reality of dreams, for everyone who longs to ride their imagination to miraculous places, the window is now wide open.  Experience the world anew through MirrorMask.
