Voiceover

As you can see, there's no string at all. What's your name? 
Uh, Holly.  
You can grab it, Holly.  
How did you do that? 
So, you do magic? 
I mean, a little. My dad passed a while back and my mom passed last year. It's just me and my little sister, Tina. Love of my life.  
What's up? You have been doing good. I've been hearing there's a new supply in the area. Homie moves into our backyard and starts selling like I don't exist. We're gonna pay him a little visit. Talk to him about etiquette.  
Sit down! Now! 
What the... 
This has turned into something I would've never signed up for. It get dangerous. I just wish I could move Tina to a neighborhood with a better school. Surround her with better people.  
You got all my money? 
I messed up bad! 
I gave you a job when you needed it most. And I'm gonna kill you and every person you know.  
What's happening?/ 
Nothing you need to worry about. Just hard being a grown up sometimes, that's all.  
I have no idea how this happened.  
I'm gonna help you figure this out.  
The more I can learn a trick, I can do something no one else can.  
Oh my God.  
I need more power.  
This isn't for a trick, is it? 
There's a lot of things in our lives that can trap us. But these barriers only exist if we let them. You know, we can do whatever we want if we just believe we're able to.
