Dans un futur proche, le scientifique norvégien Jørgen Asbjørnsen met au point le downsizing (qu'on peut traduire par « réduction ») qui permet de réduire les humains à une taille d’environ 12 cm. Cette technologie irréversible de miniaturisation cellulaire doit officiellement réduire la surpopulation et promouvoir la décroissance mais est utilisée par les volontaires, des Américains de classe moyenne , pour consommer beaucoup plus (maison, nourriture, parures de diamants aux petits formats coûtant moins cher) dans des nouvelles cités sous cloche dédiées spécialement aux downsizés. Une entreprise commerciale présente ces cités avec force marketing comme des paradis terrestres du farniente et prend en charge les opérations de downsizing.

Johanna Parry (Kristen Wiig) moves to a new town to work as a housekeeper for Mr. McCauley (Nick Nolte), an elderly man who needs help keeping house, and to be a caretaker for McCauley's granddaughter, Sabitha (Hailee Steinfeld). She meets Sabitha's father and McCauley's son-in-law, Ken (Guy Pearce), who does not live with Sabitha or McCauley, but instead resides in Chicago. Sabitha's best friend, Edith (Sami Gayle), tells Johanna (after Johanna asks where Sabitha's mother lives) that Ken's wife died several years ago. After inviting Johanna and Sabitha to dinner, Ken writes a friendly note to Johanna, which his daughter delivers. Johanna writes a response letter and Sabitha's friend Edith offers to take it to the post office and mail it. Instead, she intercepts the letter and as a cruel joke, the two teenagers forge a love note from Ken, addressed to Johanna. Then they set up a fake email account for Ken (who does not have email). They impersonate him, responding to love emails from Johanna. "Ken" calls her "my only friend". But trust must be evaluated when "Ken" asks Johanna to visit him in Chicago, and she finds out the truth about the man she loves. At the same time it might be time for McCauley to trust Ken, who might just have a new love.
