As the international human conference has failed to find a solution to wars, famine and environmental destruction, the animals Alois, Oskar and Leopold decide to hold their own conference for animals. The three of them invite animals from all over the world, from picture books, as well as children from every continent. They believe that children are innocent of humanity's problems and want to include them in their plans to improve the world. The animals organise unusual measures to persuade people to bring about a peaceful agreement between all countries: They have rodents destroy files, moths eat uniforms and kidnap children from all families. The absence of the children makes the adults realise how important it is to create a better future for them. As a result, all heads of state sign a treaty aimed at peace and the welfare of children.
