Kevin, a young flying fish, lives in the New York harbor. He dreams of leading his family back to Barbados—the mythical kingdom of the flying fish.

One fateful day his adventurous nature finds him captured by a fishing ship and delivered to the fish tank of a famous restaurant in New York city's Chinatown, where he meets a quiet young boy who also longs for excitement and adventure.

The two become fast friends and begin a daring quest to get Kevin back home to the sea.
