Margot and Marguerite are 12-year-old girls who seem no different from any other youngsters with the usual family and peer problems. While they appear to have similar faces and body shapes, they wear different clothes and hairstyles, but the biggest difference between them is that one lives in 1942 and the other in 2020. When the girls crawled into a wooden chest they were magically sent into each other’s timeline, and because the girls look so similar their family and friends do not notice the swap.
Another common factor between them is that neither has a father, so in their respective timelines, they search through history books and ask around the local neighborhood to find out why their fathers had gone missing. In the process of tracing their family histories, the two girls grow up and begin to understand their love for their families. After all this time travel, there are no more great adventures or fantasies in their lives, but they learn the happiness of routines and value of what they have. (Gina KANG)
