Jest listopad. Kiedy Meg przychodzi ze szkoły, Charles Wallace mówi jej, że widział smoki w ogródku warzywnym bliźniaków. Tamtej nocy Meg i Charles Wallace idą do warzywnika i spotykają Nauczyciela (Blajeny’ego), który wyjaśnia im, że to, co widzą, wcale nie jest smokiem, tylko cherubinem o imieniu Proginoskes. Okazuje się, że Charles Wallace jest chory, a Blajeny i Proginoskes zjawili się, żeby pomóc mu wyzdrowieć… a robiąc to, zachowują świat w równowadze i ratują go przed złym Echtrosem. Meg, Calvin i pan Jenkins (kierownik szkoły podstawowej) muszą dostać się do wnętrza Charlesa Wallace’a, żeby stoczyć tę bitwę i uratować mu życie, a jednocześnie cały wszechświat.
