Phantom Boy is a French animated film that follows the story of a boy named Leo who discovers that he has the ability to leave his body and explore the world as a ghostly apparition. The film takes place in New York City, where Leo is undergoing treatment for a serious illness that has left him bedridden in a hospital room. One day, while exploring the city as a ghost, Leo encounters Alex, a police officer who has been badly injured in the line of duty. Despite being unable to speak, Leo quickly becomes an invaluable ally to Alex, helping him to stop a dangerous maniac who is threatening to destroy the city with a computer virus.

As Leo and Alex work together to stop the villain, they also learn about each other's lives and become close friends. Along the way, they also encounter Mary, a journalist who is investigating the goings-on in the city, and Marcus, a hacker who is trying to bring down the virus from the inside.
