The story begins when Odette follows a unicorn named Lila into an Enchanted Forest.

She uses it to free Lila and the Fairy Queen tells Odette that she is the chosen one for the crystal chose her by letting her take it away from the tree. She explains that Odette is the one who will purge the evil plaguing the forest, a.k.a. the Fairy Queen's cousin, Rothbart. Odette, not wanting to get mixed up in the situation, refuses. The Fairy Queen complies but sends Lila to escort her out and give one last try at convincing her. Rothbart appears in the wood with his daughter, cornering Odette by a tree. There she is trapped and transformed into a swan by the evil wizard, who wants to use Odette and the crystal to defeat his enemy the Fairy Queen. The Fairy Queen is able to partially counter the spell so that Odette retains her human form by night, although she will still have to turn into a swan by day.

One day Odette meets Prince Daniel, and it is love at first sight. Daniel asks Odette to a ball, but at first she denies until he finally convinces her to come. When Rothbart learns of this, he transforms his daughter Odile to look like Odette in the eyes of the Prince. At the ball Prince Daniel pledges his love to Odile, thinking her to be Odette. Odette was trapped outside still in swan form and unable to tell Daniel about the trick. Odette in great shock faints giving Rothbart the chance to take the crystal.

However Odette together with her animal friends managed to out smart Rothbart's intention with the two for one policy. In the end the real Odette and Prince Daniel confess their love for each other. Everyone from the village that the Enchanted forest celebrates. It is also seen that Odette's father giving his daughter to Prince Daniel for a dance as they begin their journey together. Rothbart was turned into a Cuckoo Clock while Odile is made into a maid.

At the end, it is shown the story has given Kelly a new resolve and she promises she will participate in the race the following day. She yawns and heads off to bed, with Barbie smiling behind her.
