The storyline of the movie revolves around how the herd members come together to save themselves and their loved ones from the catastrophic event. Many hurdles come their way, including the cosmic meddling of Scrat, the acorn-obsessed squirrel, who tries to bury his acorn away from others causing the asteroid to change course and head straight for earth. The storyline also takes a personal turn for Manny, who's daughter Peaches is set to get married to her fiancÃ© Julian.
