Synopsis

The Halliwell sisters discover that they are descendants of a long line of witches when they inherit a house from their grandmother and find the family's Book of Shadows. They learn that they each have a unique power. The strong-willed Prue Halliwell (Shannen Doherty) can move objects with her mind, reserved Piper Halliwell (Holly Marie Combs) is able to freeze time, and the uninhibited Phoebe Halliwell (Alyssa Milano) sees the future. Together they have the "Power of Three", which they must use to fight demons and warlocks, and protect the innocent.

Each episode contains a personal storyline alongside a magical one, showing the bond between the sisters and the troubles that being witches could cause in their 'normal' lives. These story lines often brought the sisters to an innocent in need of protection or a demon whom they must destroy. Several episodes also centred around the Halliwell sisters understanding and learning about their magical heritage.
