In a chance meeting with a member of an ancient brotherhood, fourteen-year old Charlie Farnsworth and his best friend Jack Farrell manage to land themselves in the midst of an age old struggle to protect the world form an evil demon. Things go awry when Charlie learns that, rather than possessing superpowers, he has been possessed by the demon.
