16-year-old Haruka has lost the cherished magic mirror she received from her mother who passed away years ago. On her quest for the mirror, she meets a strange masked creature named Teo, who leads her to a magical world called Oblivion Island, the home of lost toys and treasures. As Haruka and Teo embark on an adventure through this strange land, they must contend with the island's greedy and sinister ruler, who wants the mirror's power for himself!
