He enjoyed the company of Dallan Murphy, but he longed to have an exciting life. Things take a turn when one day he is kidnapped and made to be part of the traveling show, Max’s Marvels. Finn is not treated well by Max, the owner, and Finn is terrified of him. On the home front, Finn’s parents discover that he is missing and they try their best to find out where he is.
