Sixteen-year old Nikki Dreyer just wants a simple fairy tale. As in, after meeting a genie, she becomes his master, he grants her wish to bring her sister back from the dead, and the three of them go bungee jumping at the Minnesota State Fair.
Unfortunately, magic can’t mend Nikki’s grief so easily. Sam, the genie in question, already has a master, Maxine, and this wicked witch of the Midwest has no interest in resurrecting dead sisters.
Nikki buddies up to Maxine, gaining her trust and learning what Maxine loves best – hurting Sam. Nikki bonds with Sam too and discovers that there’s more to his magic than conjuring beefcake androids. With Sam’s support, Nikki finds the courage she needs to accept the permanence of death. Ironically, that’s when a plan to trick Maxine into wishing Sam free – and get her sister back - takes shape.
Moving on is good, but thwarting death is priceless. Throw saving a sweetheart like Sam into the mix, and Nikki has plenty of reasons to see her fairy tale through. But happy endings aren’t guaranteed because if Maxine catches on to Nikki’s plan, she’ll turn Sam into a loaded weapon... and Nikki will be his target.
