September is a young girl who lives a dreary life and yearns for adventure. A strange character named The Green Wind takes pity on her and swoops into her room one evening just after her 12th birthday — she embarks on a voyage to Fairyland to track down a particular item from the Marquess, who has taken over as the new dictator.
