When a toad steals Thumbelina and floats her down the river so she can marry Toadikin, the fish help free her. She sets off on an adventure led by a butterfly, but soon things take a turn for the worse. Eventually, as she experiences additional adventures, Thumbelina eventually saves a frozen swallow who returns the favor in the end.
