Here is a poignant story of magic and familial rivalry that leads a young boy to believe in himself. Ten-year-old Andy Manotti is having a hard time adjusting to his new family. Andy's mother has died and his father has remarried, giving him a stepbrother named Jason, who receives all of the family's attention. Andy believes there is nothing he can do to change his situation, until he goes on a school trip to a museum and finds an interesting Egyptian mummy exhibition. The exhibition has a special hold on Andy, and when he returns to school, he draws a picture of a mummy, only to discover that is has the power to make his dreams come true. Andy must decide what is his true desire — to send Jason to Mars, or to bring his mother back to life.
