Embedded with quirky comedy and deep insight, this contemporary animation tale revolves around Martin, a clownfish who lives in the Great Barrier Reef with his wife. When the young couple lose their son Nemo, who ventures into the open sea, despite his father's constant warnings about many of the ocean's dangers.
Nemo is abducted by a boat and netted up and sent to a dentist's office in Sydney. So, the usually timid Marlin bravely embarks upon a journey to try and bring Nemo safely back home, Marlin meets a fish named Dory, a blue tang suffering from short-term memory loss.
The companions travel a great distance, encountering various dangerous sea creatures such as sharks, angelfish and jellyfish, in order to rescue Nemo from the dentist's office, which is situated by Sydney Harbor. While the two are doing this, Nemo and the other sea animals in the dentist's fish tank plot a way to return to Sydney Harbor to live their lives free again. Will Nemo and his father be reunited? Will they succeed in swimming free once more?

Nemo's father Marlin was originally voiced by William H. Macy.
