Steven is used to getting pushed around by school bully Meatball. Then one day he meets self-described genius Neil Katz. Neil invents a machine that will stop the bullies once and for all -- by shrinking them! After Steven sees the machine in action, he tries to stop Neil. Unfortunately, Neil decides Steven is against him too, and shrinks him as well. Eventually, Steven convinces Neil to return everyone to their normal size, and while doing so, learns an important lesson about sticking up for himself and courage.
