An old man's avant-garde plans to float over the South American rainforest by house grow stranger when he inadvertently brings a young Boy Scout along for the ride.

Carl Fredericksen, a 78-year old man eager to make good on a promise made to explore the wilds of South America with late wife Ellie, attaches an assortment of balloons to his house with a view to flying off towards the rainforest before local authorities can take him away to a group home. All does not go off without one significant hitch, however: Russell, an eight-year old Boy Scout attempting to use Carl to acquire his "Assisting the Elderly" badge, becomes an unintentional stowaway, setting out with Carl on a whimsical adventure that sees them interacting with a cast of talking dogs and other strange creatures.
