A trio of friends accidentally bring back a young girl from 1800s Ireland to present day.

A trio of friends, led by history buff Aodhan, open a long-buried time capsule and accidentally bring back a young girl, Fiadh, from 1800s Ireland to present day using an ancient Ogham stone. Able to converse with her in Irish, they struggle to assimilate her to modern day while trying to figure out a way to fix the broken Ogham stone and get her back home. Completely lost in a time unfamiliar to her, Fiadh alerts suspicion from parents, school staff and townsfolk as the friends try to cover their tracks. Eventually adapting to the 2020s, Fiadh teaches the friend group important life lessons and educates them on the Ireland she comes from. In turn, Fiadh learns about the power of friendship, what it is to be a ‘kid’, and even first love – as it isn’t long before Aodhan and Fiadh fall for each other. But soon, a distant descendant of Fiadh arrives, warning of the repercussions on existing history if Fiadh is not returned to her own time. Now she must decide – will she stay or go back?
