Insecta is the compelling tale of young Antime, a brave and determined ant who, when suddenly separated from his Amazonia colony, sets out on a perilous quest to discover both the secrets of his identity, as well as how to find and then save his threatened colony.
Antime discovers, along the way, that the jungle’s forest floor is paved with unexpected insect friends, and cruel enemies lurking in shadows. His adventures take him to see places and meet insects he never thought possible: to visit King Beeltor of the Beetles, Queen Bumble of the Bees and the mysterious and enchanting Fogwood Forest.
But as his quest continues, Antime slowly grasps that the terrifying dangers shrouding the forest of Amazonia could overshadow the whole of his world with the threat of catastrophic Insect Wars.
