When Michael Malone unexpectedly saves a dog's life, he discovers something extraordinary: He can alter reality. He is quickly recruited by UNICORNE, a secret organization dedicated to investigating strange and paranormal phenomena. He agrees to join under one condition: UNICORNE must help him find his father, who vanished three years ago.

Michael's first task is to solve the mystery of the dog he saved -- a mystery that leads him to an eccentric and sickly classmate and a young girl who was killed in a devastating accident. But the deeper Michael ventures into the strange world of UNICORNE, the quicker danger seems to find him. Is Michael strong enough to harness his newfound ability, complete the tasks set before him, and find his father?
