Carl Fredericksen and his wife Ellie's wish had been to see the Paradise Falls. After the death of his wife, Carl, now in his seventies, is alone and feels lonely. When, after some problems, he is ordered to leave his home and is to be taken to a retirement home, he uses over a thousand balloons to turns his house into a makeshift airship, and it lifts the house's foundation. The house starts flying, and Carl, to fulfill his late wife's wish, is traveling towards Paradise Falls, and discovers that a young boy, Russell, becomes an accidental passenger.
