Elliot is an anti-social artist who copes with his self-imposed isolation by secretly transforming the back room of the laundromat where he works into a menagerie of trash. When his only friend, a mute bird, drops dead, Elliot's life takes a turn for the surreal, as the menagerie comes to life, sending its creator's "reality" into a tailspin. 

Suddenly, Elliot finds himself living with a paranoid prophetess, a precocious chicken, and Wimzy, a young girl dizzy with adventure, in a world where nighttime and rain don’t exist, and showers of gold dust make everyone forget that anything bad could ever happen. 


There are only two rules: Follow the rules of the Time Keeper, and do not mess with the Universe.
