Boxes, bottles, cans. Garbage. Abandoned everywhere: on the streets, under bridges. Ignored by everyone. Motionless. Until nightfall…Slim is an old cardboard box. He lives in a marketplace with his friend Bubbles - a soda pop bottle - and other friends. Resigned to his fate, he doesn’t believe in the legend of the Magic Pyramid: a magical place where it’s possible for all garbage to have a second chance, to be once again "carriers", useful to themselves and others. His life changes when a small box, Spark, interrupts his routine. Spark is lost and he is different from everyone else. Spark involves Slim and his pal Bubbles in an adventure that will take them a place that will introduce them to the magical night world of waste. But someone is looking for Spark. An old and very powerful unused PC named Kudo, Lord of the Landfill. When Spark is captured, Slim will try to save his friend, making a choice that will give new meaning to his life.
