Ella is a spider fairy. She lives with her best friend Spider in Twig City, a busy forest that looks a bit like a metropolis. Ella has a magic wand that she can use to draw spider webs. But she can't do this on her own; she needs Spider’s help! The two are inseparable — literally because they are connected by a spider thread — until the moment Ella and Spider each want to draw a different picture. They’re both stubborn and turn their backs on each other. The spider thread breaks in two, and Ella and Spider each go their separate ways.
