Celestine is a young mouse who lives in the underground world of rodents. At the orphanage where she lives, the caretaker known as the Gray One tells scary stories about the evil nature of the bears that live in the outside world, though Celestine doubts they are entirely true. She loves to draw but must soon study dentistry, since that's what all rodents do, and to prepare, she must travel above ground to collect bear cubs' lost teeth from underneath pillows. On one such occasion, the cub's family catches Celestine in the act and chase her into a trash can where she is trapped and spends the night. The next morning, a destitute and starving bear named Ernest discovers Celestine and attempts to eat her. Celestine convinces him to let her go by helping him break into the basement of a candy shop, where he can eat his fill. He is soon caught by the store's owner, however, and arrested. Celestine, who is behind on her quota of collected teeth, agrees to free him from the police wagon if he will help her break into and rob the teeth from the office of the store owner's wife, who happens to be a dentist.

Fatah, un modeste, joyeux et optimiste paysan algérien qui n'a jamais quitté sa campagne, rêve d'emmener sa vache Jacqueline au salon de l'agriculture de Paris. Un jour, à la surprise générale, il reçoit une invitation pour s'y rendre, mais il doit emprunter de l'argent à tous les hommes du village pour mener à bien son voyage. Il quitte sa femme Naïma et ses deux filles et prend le bateau pour Marseille avec sa vache. Il entame ensuite, à pied, sa marche vers Paris. À travers la France, son voyage est plein de rencontres : il se retrouve à animer une fête de village trop arrosée, il est accueilli chez un comte ruiné, il se retrouve au cœur de revendications paysannes. Repéré par la presse, le courageux marcheur fait le buzz sur les réseaux sociaux, suscite l'admiration et subit quelques moqueries. Mais les ennuis le retardent et il n'est pas sûr d'arriver à temps au concours de la plus belle vache tarentaise.
