Billy B runs out of the house upset that his parents will not buy him a new dog after his dog Barker, was hit by a car. As Billy B runs down the street and into the nearby forest, he trips over a large root which suddenly appears in his path. As Billy B lies on the ground, a flash of bright light appears from nowhere and surrounds his body with a warm glow. The light is so bright Billy B has to cover his eyes. As soon as he finds the strength to pick himself up from the ground; Billy B realizes that his surroundings are familiar but strange at the same time. The trees seem larger, their leaves seem greener and the purple tint in the sky makes Billy B wonder if he is still living in the same world as he did before he fell. As Billy B walks around the tree, he almost bumps into a very old man holding an ancient leather book. The man appears to be more than a man; he appears to be a wizard. After a short conversation, Billy B agrees that he will help the wizard find the missing king who is the rightful heir to the kingdom's throne. In return, the wizard agrees to help Billy B return to his world but only if he is able to make an important choice before his life is changed forever.
