The story of a shadow who is tired of living a life of servitude to his "boring" human master.
Shadow Stan (Bill Hader) is stuck with Stanley Grubb (Josh Gad), a shy guy who dislikes adventure. However, when a crime is committed in the shadow world that puts both their lives in danger, Shadow Stan is forced to take control of Stanley. Together, they go on an adventure to investigate the crime and to stop the shadow villain who is leading a rebellion of shadows to take over the human world.
During their daring adventure, Shadow Stan encourages Stanley to face his fears and embrace life. But only together do they learn that they cannot be whole without a true friend.
