Holding a mysterious leather suitcase in his hand, Newt Scamander, a young activist wizard from England, visits 1920's New York while he is on his way to Arizona. Inside his suitcase hides an array of diverse, magical creatures that exist among us. Times are troubled: the already fragile equilibrium of secrecy between the unseen world of wizards and the ordinary or "No-Maj" people is at risk of being unsettled. In the meantime, the voices against wizardry keep growing with daily protests and fuelled by the increasing disasters ascribed to a dark wizard, Gellert Grindelwald. At the same time, by a twist of fate, Newt's precious suitcase is switched with the identical one of an aspiring No-Maj baker, Jacob Kowalski. Then Newt is arrested for being an unregistered wizard.
