Ted's life is a mess. He feels that the whole world is against him. Harassed by his older brother on a daily basis, his troubles get worse when the local school bully also starts picking on him.
Deep in the woods one day, while hiding from his brother and the bully, Ted finds an ancient tribal mask. The wooden treasure is a portal to another dimension. Through the Mask of the Fufura, Ted discovers an entirely new world - a miniature land nestled in the rockery at the bottom of his Grandparent's garden.
Leaving his troubled world behind, Ted quickly learns that life in the mysterious land of Shimwari is not that easy either. Standing no taller than a blade of grass, he has to deal with snakes, lizards and spiders, only in this world, these creatures take on colossal proportions.
Ted finds that he has stumbled upon a land ravaged by war. The problems of his real world seem insignificant when compared to the dilemma facing the tiny Shimwarian folk. Rat-men, known as Sotsees, under the leadership of the Evil lord Dorox have invaded this once peaceful land - forcing the Shimwarians into hiding.
Ted realizes that now is the time to face up to the challenges in his life. Will he find the courage to stand up to the school bully? Will he find forgiveness for his father, who abandoned his family so long ago? Most of all, does Ted have the courage to lead a small band of warriors in their quest to force Dorox and the Sotsees back to the dark place they came from?
The veil that separates reality and a young boy's imagination is indeed, very thin.
