Fifteen-year-old Nas stumbles upon a crashed aircraft in the woods, whose passengers are a 12-year-old girl Nova and her chatty robot ADD. Nova is a scientist from the future who has returned to the past to prevent a climate disaster, but her mission is complicated by the fact that time travel has rejuvenated her, and no one takes little girls seriously. The only solution that the two new friends come up with is to kidnap the millionaire planning to drill into the North Pole. But there are also those who want to stop them. Will Nova and Nas manage to save the planet?
