On an island far away, a white and rounded imaginary friend, Beekle, is created. Beekle follows the same protocol as other imaginary friends by waiting until a child imagines them over into the real world. But as time passes, all the friends are carried off, except him. Beekle decides to make the journey over into the real world to search for the child who needs him. It takes Beekle some time before he meets Alice. After an awkward introduction, the two become fast friends.
