An adventurous story about identity, family and friendship – full of dashing fleas and crawly bugs.
Felix is a flea who was taken in by a rhinoceros beetle family and that’s why he thinks he is a rhinoceros beetle as well. His family can’t bring themselves to tell him the truth, until one day their village is threatened by a stag beetle army. Felix wants to get help, as he knows the legend of a mighty beetle king who will save them all. He sets off on an adventurous journey and soon meets companions who accompany him on his mission. Through their path full of hidden dangers, Felix learns about his true identity.
In the end, the lively troop discovers that there is not one Beetle King, but that they are all the Beetle King if they only learn to stick together! With this realisation, they succeed in freeing the rhinoceros beetles. Felix embraces his rhinoceros beetle family and finally knows who he really is: he is a flea, a rhinoceros beetle, and a hero!
