A bookish marmoset monkey embarks on a wild adventure to travel around the planet in 80 days after accepting a challenge from a greedy frog.

Passepartout is a young and scholarly marmoset who always dreams of becoming an explorer. One day, he crosses paths with Phileas, a reckless and greedy frog, eager to take on a bet to circumnavigate the globe in 80 days and earn 10 million clams in the process. Seizing the opportunity of a lifetime to explore the world, Passepartout embarks with his new friend on a crazy and exhilarating adventure full of twists and surprises.

It's not a deeply textured film by any means, but there's rather a lot of absurd fun to have along the way.
