Six-year-old Jonathan is not exactly happy about his family''s new home, an old house lying alone by the woods, far from everything he knows. Fortunately his dog Luffe, is right there beside him. But Luffe strangely disappears. Alone in his room he hears moaning coming from under the inherited old bed. He tries to tell his parents but they do not believe in monsters. So when night falls, Jonathan is reluctantly put to sleep and with no Luffe to help him, he has to fight off the monster on his own.
