A guitar-playing cricket falls in love with Antoinette, a female ant whose
wedding plan is already under way. Failing to elope together to the south from the approaching winter, they get separated. Her wedding ensues, and he gets captured and forced to attend a TV talent show. He becomes an instant success, but without love there is no happiness.
