In the beginning, Thunder (Murray Blue) is searching for a new home. He gets left behind, so he tries to find his way back or at least find a new place to stay.
After he enters the house of magic, Thunder is kicked-out by Jack (George Babbit) and Maggie (Shanelle Gray). However, he keeps coming back hoping for a new home. Then, Lawrence (Doug Stone) declares Thunder has joined the “family”.
Then to truly join the family, Thunder joins the act. He becomes a part of the magic act to entertain sick children in the hospital. Then, unfortunately, Lawrence gets put in the hospital because of a biking accident. Thunder takes care of the house in Lawrence’s absence.
After Daniel (Grant George) takes over the house, he tries to sell it to a fabulously rich couple. However, the pigeons make sure this couple never even make it into the front door.
The exact middle of the movie (both with time and storyline) is when Lasondra Johnson (Kendra Leif) with her little dog go to view the house. She marks the middle both with the plot and the time frame of the movie.
This is also where Thunder really starts defending his new home. He and the other devices of the home use their “magic” to scare away buyers and Daniel. He may not have been welcome in the beginning. However, now he makes it clear that he belongs here with these magical creations.
Daniel is the one trying to chase Thunder out at the end. He shoots at Thunder and then attacks the entire house with a wrecking ball. It would appear almost everyone wants Thunder out of this house, except Lawrence.
In the end, Thunder is welcomed into his new home with Lawrence, Jack, Maggie, and the rest of the family. He helps with the magic show and loves his new family.
