Miss’ granddad’s wild invention takes her and her class back to the Dark Ages; there they help rescue a dragon from the Knights of Camelot. When they try to get home, they travel to the future, where their different skills help save the whole world. A lonely robot offers to send them home, although Miss has left her heart in Camelot…
