A shy and mysterious stranger named Ihi, who hides his face behind a scarf and emotes only through noises, wanders onto a rural farm one day, where he befriends an old lady and her daughter and helps them grow their garden to fantastic proportions. As Ihi's reputation grows, some of the community comes to think of him as a freak, and he is chased out of town by a mob into the jungle. There Ihi runs into trouble with an old witch who has cast a spell over the land, preventing the birds from returning, and who has a peculiar desire to obtain a powerful mask held by a giant in the mountains.
