Carl, an elderly man who has just lost his wife, wants to live out the rest of his life alone at Paradise Falls, a faraway tropical land he and his wife always dreamed of but never got to visit. With nothing left to lose, he ties hundreds of balloons to his house and decides to fly to Paradise Falls, house and all. His plan, as many do, goes awry when he find that a young boy, Russell, has stowed away with him. When they finally arrive at Paradise Falls, instead of the peaceful retirement Carl has envisioned, he and Carl end up in a fight with a greedy mercenary to save an endangered bird and her family. A gorgeous film by Pixar, with Ed Asner brilliantly adding his voice for Carl, this is a film about love, loss, and a man who realizes that adventure is waiting where you least expect it.
