On his way to school, Bastian (Barret Oliver) ducks into a bookstore to avoid bullies. Sneaking away with a book called "The Neverending Story," Bastian begins reading it in the school attic.

When Bastian reads a description of himself in the book, he begins to wonder if Fantasia is real and needs him to survive.
