Jess and her three friends decide to give their dying dog a final adventure and follow an incomplete comic book that can lead them to a mythical land where the dog can be cured by the kiss from a magical elephant. They're led to dangerous terrains and have to use their imaginations to fill in the gaps of the story, where their wacky ideas come to life, creating fantastical challenges and beasts. They finally realise they can reach the land by using the power of their minds, but have to leave their dog in the paradise realm to survive. They return to find the comic book creator was guiding them all along and come to realise the power of belief and imagination.
