A cockroach is sleeping peacefully on a leaf in the brush. Thanks to the interference of a curious hand, our friend ends up in the water. The cockroach wants to get back to his leaf, but he is surrounded by dangers. By sacrificing his antennae and legs one by one he remains in control of the situation and, after an intense journey across the sea and through the air, he manages to get back on dry land. Miraculously, all his legs and antennae have washed ashore. With all his limbs back on his body, he lies down on a leaf to gaze at the stars until, exhausted from his adventure, he falls asleep.
