Nick starts a conversation with his best mate Richie about trading-in his parents for new ones but he thinks Nick has rocks in his head.
A Book of Spells at a local market is the answer and Nick's spell swaps his parents for others, raises his dead brother Davey and wills a girl in his class to like him.
But fracturing the spell to suit his selfish ways brings a different outcome. Nicks parents lock him in a wooden crate and get rid of his beloved Labrador, Nero. Davey is the walking dead and Nick tries to stay out of his way because he is not nice anymore while Chloe now demands Nick's full attention.
Not knowing how to reverse the spell and get out of the mess, he is desperate and asks Richie to find him a witch! Madam Indigo looks the spell over but cannot reverse it. She can only guide him to counter the spell as he has distorted the original spell with damning results.
