Plot Summary
In a vacant lot in the middle of Manhattan, a thriving insect metropolis mimics the urban bustle surrounding it. While an impending human construction project imperils the insect city, a power struggle develops between upstanding grasshopper Hoppity and corrupt business owner C. Bagley Beetle, who both love the beautiful bee, Honey. A pair of humans -- struggling songwriter Dick and his faithful wife, Mary -- soon become unwitting pawns in the insects' fight for their home.
