Sophie and Mummy are sad at Nana Noo’s passing away and they think about a way to celebrate Nana and her long life. While sorting through her clothes, at the back of the wardrobe, Mummy finds Nana Noo’s old fur coat. The coat has a long history, and as Mummy and Sophie find out its secrets, the coat presents them with an opportunity for discovery, adventures, a mishap, a magical outcome and a special and lasting way to celebrate Nana Noo’s life.
