Jessie and Evan Treski are excited about magic, so Evan decides that he’s going to put on a magic show. Their mom is getting ready to go on a trip when their dad, a war reporter and very good at doing disappearing acts on his own, shows up unexpectedly. When their babysitter has an accident, their dad agrees to watch the kids while their mom is gone. Their dad tries to be helpful with the show by getting them a rabbit and a magic box, but he leaves before the show for work, leaving Evan and Jessie by themselves. When a hurricane comes, the kids have to work together to make it through the storm and to put on the show themselves.
