11 year-old Toe Thompson (Jimmy Bennett) is the target of the bullies in the suburban community of Black Falls. Everyone in the town works for Black Box Industries - the 'in' gadget sweeping the nation and on everyone's shopping list.
However, when a freak storm hits the town, a mysterious Rainbow Rock falls from the sky and grants wishes to anyone that finds it. The hometown Joe considers weird already, has just got a whole lot weirder, as the Rainbow Rock ricochets around the neighbourhood from kid to kid and parent to parent unleashing a chaotic torrent of wishes that come true from tiny aliens to giant boogers.
From Robert Rodriguez (SPY KIDS trilogy) comes a magical fantasy adventure told through a series of 'shorts' that each brings to life the sometimes wonderful, often terrible, and totally out of control wishes that become far more that Toe and his neighbours ever imagined possible.
