But when the stars start going out in the sky he finds himself exploring the world of the night with his new friend, Cat Shepard, to find out why. In the process, he is plunged into the secret world of Nocturna, which is inhabited by curious creatures that control the night.

Little by little, Tim discoverssomething strange is happening. An ominous threat is putting in danger the night and the inhabitants of Nocturna, and Tim is unknowingly the one behind it all.
