Blu (Jesse Eisenberg) is a domesticated Macaw who never learned to fly. But he's happy living with his owner and best friend, Linda (Leslie Mann) in a small town in Minnesota. They have always thought Blu was the last of his kind, but when they hear about Jewel (Anne Hathaway), another Macaw living in Rio de Janeiro, they decide to visit her. Blu and the smart, feisty Jewel must find their way back to Linda when they are kidnapped by bird smugglers. On their adventures through the streets of Rio they encounter evil henchbirds, toucans who love to dance and a bulldog whose bark is worse than his bite. Blu makes many friends on his journey – but will he ever learn to fly?
