Orphan Molly Moon was found as a baby in a box marked eMoon's Marshmallows'. She lives in grim Hardwick House, ruled over by monstrous, hairy-faced Miss Adderstone who makes her clean the toilets with her toothbrush. As if that wasn't bad enough, Molly's best friend Rocky is suddenly taken away to a new life with new parents.
While moping around the library Molly finds a mysterious old book on hypnotism and her life changes overnight. She discovers she has an amazing power to make people do anything she wants them to. Miss Adderstone is soon completely under her control, and Molly plots her daring escape from the orphanage. With some dazzling flashes from her hypnotic green eyes, she boards a jet bound for New York, where she hopes to find Rocky, fame and fortune.
But a sinister stranger is following her every move. He knows Molly's secret and is determined to use her extraordinary gift for his own evil plan.
