|Plot: Rumpelstiltskin tricks a mid-life crisis burdened Shrek into allowing himself to be erased from existence and cast in a dark alternate timeline where Rumpel rules supreme.|
Shrek has steadily grown tired of being a family man and celebrity among the local villagers, leading him to yearn for the days when he felt like a “real ogre”. When he takes his family to Far Far Away to celebrate his children’s first birthday, a series of mishaps further injure his ego, causing him to lose his temper and walk out in anger.
Shrek encounters Rumpelstiltskin, who seizes his chance, having observed Shrek’s angry outburst. He follows Shrek and arranges for Shrek to appear to save his life. To “thank” him, he gives Shrek a day to live like a real ogre, in exchange for a day from his childhood that he would not remember being erased.
