12 year old Travis Barclay and his little sister Whitney are sent begrudgingly on a summer trip to visit their grandparents’ farm in Delbert County. A greedy land developer, Norm Blandsford, has been buying up the little country town, running the hard-working residents off their land. After Travis has a run-in with one of Blandsford’s men, he is chased into the forest where he stumbles upon a magic portal to the hidden world where Paul Bunyan lives. Paul has been in self-imposed exile for 100 years, ever since the advent of machines made his role in society obsolete and left him feeling of little value to the new world. Paul, reluctantly, escorts Travis back to the farm. But upon returning, Paul witnesses Blandsford’s sinister plan, and Bunyan and Babe, the blue ox, are suddenly filled with a long-forgotten sense of purpose. With the help of their new friends, Travis and Whitney, can they save the town?
