Daredevil Danny Keegan is at it again. He's been challenged to risk his neck on another hair-raising bike stunt and he never refuses a dare. When he crashes his bike and is knocked out cold, Nilus the Sandman appears and offers the boy his ultimate dream of adventure. In search of danger Nilus and Danny arrive in The Land of Dare, which is filled with huge, menacing iron machines and inhabited by little fuzzy creatures called Darings. These creatures taunt Danny into increasingly dangerous exploits. Before long, Danny becomes faced with the Great Dare. While he is considering the suicidal jump, his new hero-worshipping friend, Meep, who looks very much like Danny's little brother, rushes in to try the jump himself to emulate Danny's "bravery." Danny suddenly realizes just how foolish it is to risk your life on things that have no point, but is it too late for Meep? 05/08DE PI 30 min.
