He signs on to a ship to India, but in a storm, he’s washed off the ship and ends up on an island, which is inhabited by very tiny people. After he managed to convince them he’s harmless and is accepted as one of their citizens, their king wants to use him in a war against a people of giants. Compared to them, even Gulliver is a gnome.
