Antz is the story of Z 4195 (Woody Allen) who is one worker ant in a colony of millions who feels insignificant under the conformity system of the totalitarian anthill. When Z accidentally meets Princess Bala (Sharon Stone) at a bar, he discovers that she has a problem similar to his, but Bala feels too significant in the colony. To meet Bala again, Z has to switch places with Weaver (Sylvester Stallone), his soldier friend, to see the Princess at a parade. At the parade, Z falls under the control of the brutal General Mandible (Gene Hackman) who is the leader of a war against the termite colony. Z comes out of the war with the termites as a hero and discovers the plans of the General to destroy the entire worker ant population, leaving only the superior soldier ants. Z fights to defeat the evil General Mandible, win over Princess Bala, and discover his own identity.
