Max (Matt Weinberg) is a lonely, recently orphaned young boy who is frequently bullied by his classmates. One night after accepting a dare, Max wanders into a mysterious mansion, where he meets the Great Zamboni (Ben Kingsley), an eccentric magician. Zamboni is unfriendly to Max at first, but eventually reveals that he has chosen a reclusive life after making his wife disappear on stage. The two become friends, and, with Zamboni's magical help, Max learns to defend himself.
