He is given a chance actually to learn magic. While he passed, Julia failed and she is obsessed with Brakebills even though she's not supposed to remember anything.
At shcool, Quentin makes instant friends with his roommate and a few people. But they're careless and they unleash something while doing a spell.
Based on Lev grossman's series of books The Magicians.
