A workaholic father, Mr Banks, is eager to foster decorum in his excitable children, and subsequently decides to employ a nanny. Learning of their father's plans, Jane and Michael write an advert of their own, but Mr Banks is unimpressed. Exasperated, he tears the paper to pieces before throwing it into the fire, and drafting his own advert for a serious nanny. However, mysteriously, on the day of the interviews all but one of the candidates blows away in an unusual hurricane, leaving Mary Poppins, who is holding a reassembled piece of paper…
Thus starts the adventures of the Banks children with their new nanny, who is both strict yet engaging, demure but fun, and magical, yet down to earth. Can she persuade the Banks to reunite with each other as a family before the wind changes?
