Frankie Piccolini wants to be Indiana Jones. With his trusty sidekick, the family dog Argyle, Frankie explores the most distant regions of the planet, often found in his own house. Like any normal kid, Frankie would rather play and explore than clean up his room. He can't believe it when, one day, his mother tells him that he doesn't have to keep it clean, BUT, he has to live with the consequences! Without the hindrance of cleaning his room, and himself, Frankie is free to continue his intrepid explorations, but, how will he tackle the Closet of Doom?
