What's the Plot of ‘Extraordinary’ Season One?

In a world where everyone acquires particular superpowers as soon as they turn eighteen, Jen is the only exception to the tradition. She turned eighteen nearly seven years ago and is still waiting for her special powers. 

Jen needs clarification about her mighty strength, guessing between super-fast speed and laser eyes, and is gradually losing the patience and energy to move forward. 

Fortunately, Jen's close friend Carrie is always by her side, helping her tackle the confusion. Jen and Carrie have been together since they were in school, and nothing seems to stop their relationship. Extraordinary generally showcases the power of friendship and exclusivity.
