When Horace F. Andrews sees a sign from the bus with his name on it, he goes to investigate what it could mean. The sign leads him to a warehouse full of mysterious objects. There he receives a strange gift: a box that he soon discovers allows him to see the future and send small objects into the future. This box causes him many problems, however. Seeing the future can have difficult consequences that will put him, his family, and his new friend Chloe—a girl who has a magical object herself—as he finds himself in a conflict between two powerful groups of people. When Chloe’s dad is taken by the enemy, Horace has to make crucial decisions to save her dad and others.
