In a fantasy world of opposing kingdoms, a 15-year old girl named Helena works at the family circus with her father and mother.

But she wishes--quite ironically--that she could run away from the circus and join 'real life'.

But such is not to be the case, as she finds herself on a strange journey into the Dark Lands, a fantastic landscape filled with giants,

Monkeybirds and dangerous sphinxes. She must find the fabled MirrorMask in order to save the kingdom and get back home.
