When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion which results in a tremendous peach — and launches a journey of enormous proportions. Suddenly, James finds himself in the center of the gigantic peach among human-sized insects with equally oversized personalities. When the peach falls from the tree and rolls into the ocean, the group is launched on an epic adventure where they must learn to work together and be resourceful. Thanks to James's quick wit and creative thinking, the residents learn to live as a family. The dangerous voyage is a success, but the adventure takes a whole new twist once they land on the Empire State Building!
