12-year-old Clara is just like any other girl until one day when she is scratched by a mysterious, black cat. Soon after, Clara discovers that she can communicate with the cat and that she belongs to a family of wild witches, who have a strong connection to nature and animals. It turns out that Clara is a particularly special wild witch, whose blood can set free the ancient and evil witch, Bravita Bloodyoung. Together with her aunt and mentor, Isa, and her friends, Kahla and Oscar, Clara must face her destiny and embark on a dangerous journey in order to save herself and the Wild World from the evil forces of Bravita.
