World traveler and adventurer Gulliver is invited to return to Lilliput, the town he previously saved from the enemy fleet of the neighboring Blefuscu. When he arrives, he only finds indignation, panic and a hopeless crowd, as the King of Lilliput made his people believe that the legendary Giant Gulliver was returning. Instead, they discover an ordinary man. Disappointed, the King orders Gulliver's execution. Meanwhile, the invincible Blefuscu armada is at the gates of the city.
