Accidentally breaking a barrier between our world and theirs (called THE MOTHER KINGDOM), Is'nana, the son of Anansi (The West African God of Spiders) accepts the responsibility for releasing creatures of horror into our world, villains who want nothing more but to cause chaos and mayhem to achieve their own diabolical or selfish goals.
