When Trent Muscletruck, a young contractor, forces Ainara Mítu, an immigrant student, off the road, Robin Goodfellow a.k.a. Puck, a fairy from A Midsummer Night’s Dream, conjures a curse whereby Muscletruck must speak in iambic pentameter until he saves Mítu from a danger which draws near. All of this is a story Puck is telling to Shakespeare and his gathered characters in a limitless garden where they are spending eternity.
Speaking poetically upends Muscletruck’s life. His customers think he is mocking them with his new, elaborate speech, while his employees believe he is possessed by the devil. In an attempt to return his life to normal, he reluctantly tries to protect Mítu from this unspecified danger, but he only succeeds in making her life worse, as he inadvertently draws the attention of Immigration officers to her.
With both their lives in turmoil Muscletruck and Mítu are drawn together into an adventure. They flee to Sanctuary City, where new adventures populated by strange characters await…
