Laura's determination to get into medical school has cast her as a brain and, thus, untouchable. She has a crush on Pete, the football captain and weird things are happening on a daily basis, ever since Omar, the creepy boy next door, moved in. Laura makes Omar confess his secrets: he's training to become the guardian of the Second Dimension, while he's exploring the Fifth. Laura invites Pete on a journey to the Fifth Dimension but her game becomes a nightmare when she and Pete are captured, and the whole existence of the world depends on Omar's ability to rescue them.
