Twins Trey and Tai are not like other high schoolers. Besides his crushing lack of popularity, Trey struggles to suppress his surging magical abilities that continually impede his dream of making first chair cello in orchestra. A budding photographer, Tai just wants to take beautiful pictures and find a girlfriend, maybe the new first chair cello and Trey’s rival, Ayesha. But disturbing images keep appearing in Tai’s camera lens, bringing up forgotten memories of her mother’s disappearance ten years earlier and reigniting the twins’ search for her. As the two discover more clues, Trey and Tai also uncover strange secrets about their magical family and about cunning villains who resurface and threaten their very survival. Together, Trey and Tai must work to unearth the past and preserve the future of their family.
