10 year old Lucas Nickle (Zach Tyler Eisen) is new to the neighborhood, where he is constantly being bullied by the big guy on the block and his gang of followers. He takes his frustration out on an anthill in his front yard; kicking, stomping and squirting it with his water gun.

Ant wizard Zoc (Nicolas Cage) pours a potion into his ear that turns 10 year old Lucas ant-size, instead of being studied and then eaten, he is sentenced to hard labor by the Queen (Meryl Streep). Nurse Hova (Julia Roberts) volunteers to train Lucas and they learn each other’s ways; he the culture of the ants, and she the ways of humans. Also, albeit much later, Zoc begins to warm up to Lucas telling him that ants work for the benefit of the colony while Lucas admits that most humans do things for personal gain confusing Zoc as to how anything ever gets accomplished or coordinated in Lucas' world.

Yet with the constant danger of the wasps looming, and the real threat of an exterminator coming to wipe them all out, Lucas has to dig deep into his human ‘ant-sized’ bag of tricks… Lots of family fun for everyone.
