This film is a sound film with a synchronized soundtrack featuring music and sound effects and with little to no spoken dialogue.[4] The film shares the same creative universe as the Minuscule series also created by Hélène Giraud and Thomas Szabo. It won the César Award for Best Animated Feature Film at the 40th César Awards.

Plot[edit]

In a peaceful little clearing, the remains of a picnic hastily abandoned spark warfare between two tribes of ants. A bold young ladybug finds herself caught in the middle of the battle. She befriends one of the black ants, Mandible, and helps him save the anthill from the assault of the terrible red ant warriors, led by the fearful Butor.
