Tweens Ryan, Carrie, and Josh do not realize the price they will pay when they steal coins from an old wishing well. The stolen coins bind them into the service of the spirit who inhabits the well and grants wishes. The three friends are given special powers to aid them as they begin fulfilling their obligation to the Well Spirit. They realize, however, that the spirit does not always have the wishers' best interests at heart. As Ryan and Chelle begin to disobey the Well Spirit, Josh's character takes a sinister turn as he embraces his new power.
