Eugene is a shy 10-year-old who is constantly tormented in school. One day, while attempting to hide from bullies, Eugene finds a mysterious door with the sign “DO NOT ENTER.” Having nowhere to escape, he enters and falls through a hole leading deep underground. There, amidst spiders, bats and kick-knacks, he discovers a child’s dream—a refuge stocked with toys and candy, inhabited by other runaways who urge him to stay. Eugene has two choices: either go back and face his problems or hide away and leave everything behind—including his loved ones. He chooses to stay, but there is a price to pay for it.
