When upper class English girl Penelope finds a magic opal containing two Australian genies, Bruce and his son Baz, she thinks all her problems are over. But Bruce has other ideas.

It's a comedic battle of wills and a clash of cultures, as Penelope learns that there is a difference between power and wisdom.
