Cela fait trois ans que Alice sillonne les mers en tant que capitaine du navire Wonder, le vaisseau de feu son père, le Lord Kingleigh. En 1875, après son retour d'un de ses voyages en Chine, Alice reçoit la visite d'un mystérieux papillon bleu. Elle devine tout de suite qu'il s’agit d'Absolem. Lui faisant confiance, elle le suit, et c'est grâce à lui qu'elle traverse un miroir. De l'autre côté, Absolem fait savoir à Alice que le Chapelier Fou, le grand ami de cette dernière, est en danger. Sans hésiter, Alice rejoint vite la demeure du Chapelier, qu'elle trouve mourant (souffrant de tristesse et d'anxiété en pensant que sa famille est encore vivante). D'après la Reine Blanche, Mirana, le seul moyen de le sauver est de remonter le temps. La mission d’Alice est donc de sauver le Chapelier en sauvant sa famille en essayant de ne pas se faire attraper par le Temps lui-même, qui a collaboré avec la perfide Reine Rouge, Iracebeth, la sœur de Mirana.
