SEVENTY-eight-year-old balloon salesman Carl Fredricksen finally fulfils his lifelong dream of a great adventure when he ties thousands of balloons to his house and flies away to the wilds of South America.

But he discovers all too late that his biggest nightmare has stowed away on the trip - an overly optimistic eight-year-old named Russell.

Russell is a Wilderness Explorer trying to earn his final merit badge for "assisting the elderly".

Together they face numerous dangers and make friends with Kevin, a female tropical bird, and dog Dug, who wears a translator collar which enables him to speak.
