At some point, a strange thunderstorm happened during which each of the five intruders was struck by lightning. Recovered, the main characters of the TV show no longer feel the same as before. Each of them gained some kind of superpower – from reading minds and the ability to become invisible to managing the time.

That thunderstorm was the beginning of a whole chain of events, each more incredible than the last. Having begun to accept new themselves, the main characters realize that some other residents of the city have also received superpowers.
