Other times, Zee's a rough boy from Brooklyn, New York, playing basketball and getting into trouble.
Her four grown-ups are worried. They test Zee's abilities, then try to hide them. Zee anticipates and thwarts their plans. Over time, Zee learns to fit into the moulds of society and people's expectations...but will losing sight of who she really is put her in even greater danger?
