A family of dolls languishes in the dusty dollhouse up in the attic for years until two little girls, nieces of the original owner, clean the dolls and play with them. Just as the dolls begin to enjoy their new “life” in a universe parallel to that of the girls, they realize with horror that one of them— the young son, Walter—is missing. The dolls desperately attempt to communicate with the girls so they’ll help find Walter. But nothing works until a friendly dog helps to bridge the gap between the two worlds.
