Synopsis

Lala, the mischievous fairy prince, is in trouble again: he left the boundaries of the island kingdom disguised as a boy. Near a lone beach house on the human half of the mysterious island, Lala meets a girl, Bee. Bee recently lost her parents and is on the island with her uncle to heal.

Lala and Bee’s forbidden friendship sets off a series of events in the world of the fairies that will soon have serious consequences for humans far beyond the boundaries of the island. Lala and Bee set out to right the wrongs and defeat the cruel sorcerer Aterpater, who holds Lala’s mother, the queen, in his grip.
