When the much-lauded Magnifico Onion sets off to win his family a Happily Ever After, his little brother, Alfie, is happy just to tag along and carry his luggage. But when Magnifico fails to live up to his own hype it’s left to Alfie to save the day. With the help of his loyal dog, a talking horse, and a couple of meddling magpies, Alfie takes his destiny into his own hands.
