Just as winter begins to blanket his sleepy village, a little ladybug cozies his way into a chestnut factory and finds himself accidentally trapped inside a shipment heading for the Caribbean! His parent, through some quick investigative work, figures out the little guy’s exotic destination and sets out on a heroic overseas journey to rescue his beloved offspring.
The mission gets more complicated when the father ladybug learns that his son’s new Caribbean home is on the verge of being demolished by a massive construction project. Along with some help from an old pal who comes sailing to the rescue, this crew of colourful teensy heroes develops an elaborate plan to save a precious patch of rainforest.
