Mousetraps lurk in the houses and the little mouse cannot find the other mice anymore. Have they all travelled to the distant place where a statue welcomes all newcomers? On a trip back from the port the little mouse can hardly get under shelter from the lurking cats. When suddenly meeting bats, the little mouse decides to learn how to fly! The humans are surprised that more and more everyday objects disappear.
Not all flying machines are workable, but finally the time has come. On this occasion the flight to America will be successful! But humans and owls have become aware of the mouse and his flying machine. Suddenly, the little mouse is in great danger. What will become of his dreams of flying and being free?
