In this original fairy tale, orphans Olya and her little brother Sacha have nothing left in the world except each other, their cat Basil, and a sewing machine left to them by their mother. Before she died, their mother warned the children never to part with the sewing machine, as it will help them when all else fails. The children are sent to a cold, dark orphanage run by the miserly Miss Schnaap, who stuffs her mattress with money while Olya sews, Sacha makes baskets, and Basil chases mice in the cellar. The children long to escape, until one icy night a strange occurrence in the attic changes everything, revealing at last the wonderful secret of the magic sewing machine.
