Cedric Brown is a hard-working widower who can't spend much time with his seven children, so he leaves them in the care of nannies. However, the children are very naughty and have managed, with pride, to scare the past seventeen nannies away. Running out of options, Mr. Brown listens to a mysterious voice's advice to call for a "Nanny [=McPhee=]". Nanny [=McPhee=] (Creator/EmmaThompson) turns out to be a hag-like woman with a crooked cane and a habit of [[StealthHiBye appearing out of nowhere]] (though she does mention she did knock). But there's a secret to her care-taking -- she has [[MagicalNanny magic powers]], which she uses to teach the children some important lessons.
