Mary Katherine (voiceover by Amanda Seyfried), a young teenage girl, visits her father Professor Bomba (Jason Sudeikis) in a remote forest after the death of her mother. Their relationship is strained due to her father's obsession with his work. In fact, she is convinced that her father has gone nuts when he tells her that "the forest is inhabited by miniature beings".
Dejected, she ambles into the forest and finds herself magically transported into this secret universe filled with miniature yet larger than life figures, where she witnesses Queen Tara (Beyonce Knowles) being attacked by Mandrake (Christoph Waltz) and his son.
