Twelve-year-old Aru Shah has a tendency to stretch the truth, sometimes to fit in at school. While classmates are enjoying family vacations to far off places, Aru spends it at home, in the Museum of Ancient Indian Art and Culture, waiting for her mom.
But when classmates show up at the museum, a mean dare goes all wrong when Aru accidentally frees the Sleeper, an ancient demon. Time around her is frozen and the only way to save her classmates and mother is to find the reincarnations of the five legendary Pandava brothers, protagonists of the Hindu epic poem, the Mahabharata, and journey through the Kingdom of Death. But how is one girl in Spider-Man pajamas supposed to do all that?
