Clumsy, awkward yet kind-hearted teenage outcast Blakely receives a strange grift from her struggling workaholic father for her 16th birthday, a small furry creature known as a mogwai that her dad bought from a junk store in Chinatown (actually he stole it) and he gives her three very important rules to follow: do not expose the mogwai to bright lights or sunlight which will kill it, do not let it get wet, and never feed it after midnight. Initially, Blakely is very hesitant but is quickly won over by the adorable little creature that she ends up naming “Gizmo”, unfortunately, her unintentional negligence unleashes mayhem and chaos on her town.
(Yeah, the changes I've made are to do with the characters and the setting, I made the main character female this time and this movie won't be set during Christmas.)
