The days are boring in Shuckersville lately and 11 year old William is desperate for an adventure like the kind he sees in the movies. He has almost lost all hope of ever finding something exciting to be a part of. Everything changes one morning when he discovers a dull grey metal box under a hedge in his yard. Opening it reveals the first of a tangle of mysteries that leads him to a secret room behind the movie screen in the old theater. William must pay attention to the details as he experiences the events that unfold. With the help of his best friend Marie, he slowly begins to piece together why there is a lone cornstalk growing in his neighbors back yard, why its surrounded by lanterns, and why someone is out to get their hands on the box and its contents. William and Marie face one hurdle after the next in their search for answers. It's up to them to investigate the clues as they try to sort out why the box was under the hedge. At first, the kids have no idea the magnitude of what they are involved in but as time ticks by they began to understand. Tensions are high as the realize they are running out of time. Will they be able to figure it all out before it's too late? The "Pop-ulation" of Stock om is in desperate need of the brave duo. Trouble is, no one knows it yet.
