A shy and mysterious stranger named Ihi, who hides his face behind a scarf and seems unable to speak, wanders onto a rural farm one day, where he befriends an old woman and her granddaughter. He helps them grow their garden to fantastic proportions, but as Ihi's reputation grows, some of the community comes to think of him as a freak for his peculiarities and he is chased out of town by a mob into the jungle. There Ihi runs into more trouble with an old witch. She has cast a spell over the land to prevent the birds from returning and has a strange desire to obtain a powerful mask held by a giant in the mountains, which she wants Ihi to retrieve for her.
