SYNOPSIS

A full-length, animated movie modelled on a chivalric romance ballad. The story takes place in the world of insects. The Blue Knight and his squire set off on a journey to free the sister of Queen of Butterflies. After many adventures the Knight arrives in a castle where the princess is imprisoned. The Blue Knight defeats a brutal admirer-kidnapper and together with the princess sets off on a return journey. The brave hero is in love with the beautiful princess but she chooses Count Hawk Moth, whom they meet on the way. To make matters worse, the revengeful knight Lucanus wounds the Blue Knight in a duel. Luckily, in the court of the Queen of Butterflies, a kind-hearted Ant saves the Knight’s life. When he recovers, he notices the beauty and goodness of the Ant who is in love with him.
