While exploring the property, Ruby finds a wishing well and is shown a wish that she must help fulfill,” as per the official synopsis.
“As a newcomer to the town Ruby has a hard time knowing whom to trust. However, she quickly befriends two locals: Sam and Mina. With their knowledge of the town and her ability to reach out to others Ruby just might be able to bring the town of Emerald out of the economic depression it has been stuck in for years,” the synopsis reads further.
Toronto is a significant filming location of the previous seasons of the show as well.
