The adventurous honey bee, Ziggy, gets into another sticky situation. Ziggy and his new family are on another adventure. They travel to Japan for a special mission – to try and find out what is causing the bees of Tokyo to disappear. While investigating, Ziggy comes across new friends, a colony of honey bees with a very different way of protecting their hive; and a new terrifying enemy – the huge hornet, Torgo. When Ziggy’s built-in navigation system suddenly vanishes, Ziggy, Wiri and Calluna are lost in the strange city. Will Ziggy be able to guide them back to base and solve the mystery of the missing bees in time?
