In the town of Zombay, there is a witch named Graba who has clockwork chicken legs and moves her house aroundmuch like the fairy tale figure of Baba Yaga. Graba takes in stray children, and Rownie is the youngest boy in her household. Rownies only real relative is his older brother Rowan, who is an actor. But acting is outlawed in Zombay, and Rowan has disappeared.

Desperate to find him, Rownie joins up with a troupe of goblins who skirt the law to put on plays. But their plays are not only for entertainment, and the masks they use are for more than make-believe. The goblins also want to find Rowanbecause Rowan might be the only person who can save the town from being flooded by a mighty river.
