The Portal

A dimension-travelling wizard gets stuck in the 21st century because cell phone radiation interferes with his magic.

With his home world on the brink of war, he seeks help from a jaded travel agent whom he mistakes for a great sorceress.

Without his powers to prove his identity she has trouble taking him seriously, but finally agrees to reveal the secrets of our world in exchange for a lunch date.
