Ten-year-old Arthur, in a bid to save his grandfather's house from being demolished, goes looking for some much-fabled hidden treasure in the land of the Minimoys, tiny people living in harmony with nature.

This is Archibald Suchot, a treasure hunter, explorer, and engineer. He spent 10 years in Africa building every type of useful thing. Oh, by the way, it's in the heart of Africa that our story begins.

The story is based on the premises that a doorway into the Minimoys world opens up every 10 months, and the return is possible within 36 hours, or, if you miss that window, after 1000 days, which is almost 3 years (much more than 10 months). While it may appear as a contradiction, it really isn't. The inbound doorway opens due to the full moon, but the outbound doorway doesn't require the moon at all, since it can open even during the daylight. Thus, it's perfectly reasonable for each way to have different rules.
The credits feature the characters walking by the names of their voice actors and sometimes pausing briefly to wave. The human characters (Arthur's grandmother, parents,etc.) are in Minimoy form. Luc Besson is also seen in Minimoy form.
