Shrek is finding life boring with his three ogre babies about to turn one. He’s tired of changing nappies and playing baby games and starts to long for the days when he was a fearsome ogre. At the babies’ party, Shrek drinks too much and talks too much to the wicked Rumplestiltskin who offers him a whole day when he can be his old ogre self. In exchange Shrek has to give up just one day from his childhood.
