In post-earthquake Christchurch, Laura Chant cares for her younger brother Jacko while their mum Kate is a work. After school one day Laura loses Jacko, only to find him playing in a pop-up shop filled with strange toys. The shop-owner, Carmody Braque, gives Jacko a stamp on his hand and sends them on their way. Jacko begins to get sick and Laua realises there is more of Braque, and the stamp, than she had realised. Fearing that something supernatural is a work and desperate to save her brother, Laura seeks help from Sorensen Charlisle, a prefect at her school. Laura discovers that Sorenson is from a family of witches. Sorensen's mum reveals that the only way Laura can save Jacko is to 'change over' and become a witch to defeat the evil anchient spirit Braque.
