While struggling with her royal duties, Princess Destiny trains hard to be an acrobat and fulfill her dream of touring the universe. When her father pushes her into an arranged marriage to ensure peace in the galaxy, Destiny turns to the Prime Minister to pull her out. He teleports her away with his scheme in mind while falsely promising he will find a solution.

Once stranded on a post-apocalyptic Earth, Destiny realizes she has been morphed into an alien girl, half her age, with long, three-fingered hands! She is taken in by outcast teenagers and learns to survive outside her royal comfort zone while discovering what friendship means. Despite feeling awkward in her new body, Destiny retains all her prior skills, which she utilizes to survive in the new environment.

After meeting a bounty hunter, Destiny tricks him into a poker game to win his loyalty. He must help Destiny break into the most sophisticated vault in the galaxy and steal the shapeshifter serum she needs to return to normal. Even if he can't fathom why she can act and speak so grown-up. Unfortunately, the serum turns out to be useless. The first of many obstacles Destiny will have to overcome on her journey back home.

In search of belonging and identity, Destiny's journey will teach her that it is not the vessel that matters but its engine. And that restoring order to the galaxy takes priority. In the process, she will learn her place and role and preserve peace.
