For Z, Life as an ant is not all it's cracked up to be. He's not much of a digger, he doesn't buy into the superorganism mentality, and he's plagued by an overall sense of insignificance. Then he meets the lovely Princess Bala. There's something about Bala that makes Z want to be a better ant. So when an unlikely turn of events marks him as a hero, Z does the last thing anyone would have expected - he rises to the challenge. And before he knows it, Z really is a hero - leading the entire worker ant colony in a revolution against conformity. Which just goes to show you: no matter how small, weak, or insignificant he might be, one ant CAN make a difference!
