Elliott has just moved into a new house. He spends his days with his fictional friends, immersed in a book.
When an inviting Sunday rain gathers the local kids to play in the puddles, Elliott longs to join in, but he's too shy to go outside.
Soon, Elliott discovers that new friendships are like a new book - you just have to plunge into the adventure.
