Ranoquita is attracted by the wonderful voice of Thumbelina and thinks to take advantage of her. Thumbelina declines to collaborate with them when El Rambito, the eldest son, proposes to her. The girl is rescued by Jacomo, a nice swift, then she sets out in search of her beloved Cornelius. When winter arrives, Thumbelina is forced to refuge in a shoe and a little mouse, Aunt Carolina, invites her in the warmth of her underground house.
