The classic tale updated with contemporary language and themes. A super industrious ant has opened a branch ant hole when a "hippy type" grasshopper moves in next door. Ant resists grasshopper's offers to join him and his friends. For his diligence Ant is promoted. With his two assistants Ant prepares for winter. Grasshopper, naturally, doesn't believe in winter or the warnings of Ant and even the attack of hungry Spider fails to daunt his optimism. But winter comes; and Grasshopper, who has no food or shelter and Ant, who has no friends and never had any fun, discover there is more to life than they thought.
