For his birthday, Omri receives a cupboard from his brother. But this is no ordinary cupboard; using his grandmother's magical key, he brings a plastic Native American figurine to life--an Iroquois from the 18th century. However, when Omri's best friend Patrick finds out about the cupboard, he starts off a chain reaction of events by bringing his own toy--a cowboy named Boone-to life.
A young man receives two presents that will change his life: a plastic miniature Indian that magically comes to life inside a mysterious old cupboard.
