Percival Adler is an ordinary boy who gets bullied because he is skinny, small, and an easy target. One day he is running away from three bullies Huey, Dewey, and Louie. He runs into the forest, and finds a door in the middle of it. He has to make a choice, should he go through the mysterious door or should he get pummeled. The door leads him, his friends, and his sister to an adventure with knights, samurai, pharaohs, and kings. The fate of the world is in their hands.
