Beetle girl Luna has a dream: To compete in the big animal talent show. Sadly, her family's great talent is to produce smelly farts which they use to defend against predators. Luna isn't exactly proud of that talent.

But she has a much more charming talent of her own! She can evoke the most astounding shadow silhouttes in the moonlight: big and small, flying and crawling. But it's a long way to her performance in front of the jury. Just as well that her new friends, the shy dorbeetle Max and the sweet firebug Johannes, help her stand her test.
