When upper-class English girl, Penelope (Alexandra Milman), finds a magic opal containing two Australian genies, Bruce (Rhys Muldoon), and his son, Baz (Glenn Meldrum), she thinks all her problems are over. But, Bruce has other ideas. He and Baz trick Penelope into wishing her family to Australia at every opportunity. Penelope hates Australia and is constantly trying to get back to England. It's a comedic battle of wills and a clash of cultures, as Penelope learns that there is a difference between power and wisdom.
