Imagine the power to instantly go anywhere in the world, anytime at all, bringing anyone you want!
Fifteen-year-old Eric Engel and his mom purchase a car from a strange old couple who live out in the desert. Before Eric’s mom drives their car home, the old man gives Eric weird advice about the car––that it will take him special places where he could help people in need.
The next day, Eric finds a ring in the backseat of the car. He notices an insignia on it looks like a wishbone. Not knowing the ring has powers, Eric, wishes he could go to Germany to learn things for a school assignment. The next thing he knows he’s teleported to a German castle. He's not sure if he's dreaming but decides to explore the fortress anyway.
Eric sees a five-year-old boy who was about to fall 50 feet off a wall to his death. Risking his own life, Eric jumps off the lookout and saves the child, at the same time smashing his torso onto a wall.
Upon returning home in pain, Eric realizes it wasn’t a dream and tried to contact the old man, but he can’t reach him. Eric reveals his new power to his best friend Victor. Victor talks Eric into using the new power to take him to his old neighborhood in East Los Angeles. They happen upon a wedding reception where they see a band member passed out in the bushes and try to save him. The police start asking questions and they must escape before they are taken to the station.
Later they go to Maui, and after Eric and Victor have fun snorkeling and riding the waves they chase a purse snatcher, but end up with more than they bargained for. Again they must make a daring escape or they may be captured by a gang or taken by the police for questioning.
Eric is fond of a Hindu girl named Mala. She moved into his neighborhood from India two years ago. However, Eric’s schoolmate nemesis––Stan, the Cro-Magnon man—also likes Mala and fights Eric to keep him away from her. Eric bravely stands up to him.
Mala, likes Eric too. She is suddenly thrown into a crisis when she learns her parents were kidnapped while vacationing in India. As she is about to use her parents’ credit card to buy a plane ticket to India, to help find them, Victor persuades Eric to use the ring to take her there himself. He does and brings Victor along.
The plot heats up in India where the three characters become entangled with Indian criminals, and end up getting kidnapped themselves. Only through prayer and miracles do the three of them escape. Through their influence and selfless acts, many people in India are blessed and friendships forged. Her parents are safe.
After the three return from India, they all attend their Homecoming dance where Stan tries to take Eric out of the picture, once and for all. Eric uses his powers to get Stan thrown in jail and one of the kidnappers captured in Japan.
