Having just moved to Los Angeles, Sarah (Robin Tunney) is an outsider at St. Benedict's Academy until she meets three other social outcasts. Nancy (Fairuza Balk), Bonnie (Neve Campbell) and Rochelle (Rachel True) will never fit in with the “in” crowd. But together with Sarah, they learn that being an outsider has its own kind of power. Nancy, Bonnie and Rochelle dabble in the occult, and when they notice Sarah has the powers of a natural witch, they talk her into joining their coven. With the addition of a fourth witch they find they can cast spells they couldn't before, and the teenage witches are suddenly not only able to get the attention, praise and love they have long been denied-but also to exact vengeance on classmates, parents and boyfriends. They learn, however, that everything comes with a price.
