In this wordless, situational comedy, The Old Man, who lives alone, prepares to celebrate his birthday. To his surprise, the solitary festivities are interrupted when a playful Red Balloon floats into his apartment, shaking up his normal routine. The Balloon teases and delights the Old Man, reminding him the power of play, laughter, and friendship. Through spectacular physical comedy in the tradition of Charlie Chaplin, the two enjoy a surprising number of adventures.
