Dans un monde imaginaire, un Soleil et une Lune sont petits et ont été inventés par les premiers Gardiens pour réchauffer la petite planète où vivent différents peuples merveilleux. Le premier Gardien du Soleil a harponné une étoile pour la garder près de la planète et l'a accrochée par des chaînes à un temple mobile semblable à un énorme animal quadrupède fait de roche. Le premier Gardien de la Lune, lui, est descendu dans le monde des rêves et a sculpté la Lune dans une carrière de pierre onirique et l'a lancée dans le ciel. La Lune est elle aussi tirée autour de la planète par un temple mobile, sorte d'énorme animal hybride entre un dromadaire et une girafe auquel elle est attachée par les filins d'une foule d'araignées à soie aux allures de hiboux. Depuis, les Gardiens se succèdent de génération en génération et préservent l'harmonie du monde. Les peuples du jour et ceux de la nuit vivent en bonne intelligence, même s'ils sont très différents les uns des autres. Mais dans les profondeurs de la planète, Nécross attend l'occasion d'établir les ténèbres sur le monde.

Walter Mitty is a negative assets manager at Life magazine who daydreams of adventures and has a crush on a coworker named Cheryl. Mitty works with photojournalist Sean O'Connell, whose images are highly regarded. O'Connell has sent Mitty his latest negatives and a wallet as a gift in appreciation of Mitty's work. O'Connell believes negative #25 captures the "quintessence" of Life and that it should be used for the cover of the magazine's final print issue as it converts to online status. The negative is missing, however, and Walter is forced to stall for time with corporate transition manager Ted Hendricks, who is handling the downsizing. While viewing the other negatives outside Life's offices, Cheryl approaches Mitty and suggests that he think of the negatives as clues to Sean's location. They look at three of them, including one of a person's thumb with a unique ring on it, and another of a curved piece of wood. A third picture of a boat leads Mitty to determine that O'Connell is in Greenland. Mitty promptly flies there to find him.
