Synopsis:

Matilda Wormwood is a child different from other children her age. Her mind, emotions and abilities operate at a very high level.

She loves to read, has telekinetic abilities, creates stories with her mind and abhors injustice, growing up in an unfair world, around the wrong people, as is unfortunately the case with all special creatures.

Matilda, with her mind and purity, fights by standing up for what is right and just, stands up to the obstacles put in front of her by her family and the paranoid headmistress of her school, and helps her beloved teacher to win her life back.
