Gilbert and Jade live in a small village close to the seaside, surrounded by rolling green hills. Jade lives on a farm with her parents whilst Gilbert, the mayor's son, spends most of his time experimenting in his home's basement. Dingley Dell is a nice quiet place where not much happens, except when these two friends get together… Here, the pair has a heated argument over the existence of fairies. After meeting a strange but lovable little man, Jade is cast into a dark magical place where she confronts a particularly nasty bully. But will Gilbert believe her incredible story?
