In a deserted spot at the heart of a natural valley, a couple of young lovers has just finished a picnic lunch. The young man is taking a nap under the pine trees, while his girlfriend, who is pregnant, is reading a book and munching on strawberries. Suddenly the young woman starts to have contractions. Her companion wakes in a state of panic and helps her up. The future parents rush off in their car, leaving the tablecloth with the remains of their picnic lunch behind them.
At the same time, not very far away, under some leaves at the edge of a clearing, a ladybug is giving birth to three baby bugs. After their first lesson in how to take off and fly, the little family starts to head home…Except that the littlest ladybug is also the most intrepid one and prefers discovering the outside world to obeying his mother and takes off alone in the forest. Very soon the brave little ladybug meets a gang of flies that taunt and chase him. The ladybug tries to escape, but due to his lack of experience he is soon overtaken by the gang, loses control and falls into a crevasse. Left for dead by the flies, the ladybug slowly comes to and realizes he has lost a wing in the accident. When night falls, he crawls out of the crevasse and calls out for his parents. As no one answers, the ladybug starts to wander in the forest in the pouring rain and finally finds refuge in a tin of sugar cubes abandoned by the young couple.
The following day, a column of black ants, attracted by the scent of sugar, heads for the tin box. On orders from their leader, Mandible, the worker ants lift up the box and start to take it back to their ant hill. A little later, the ladybug, who had remained inside the box, saves the ants’ lives by chasing away a lizard, thus earning his place among the ants.
But it is just the beginning of a series of adventures those will lead the ladybug and the black ants to fight against the red ants, to keep their sugar box.
