The film is a second spin-off and prequel film to the Shrek franchise, and follows Donkey before his first appearance in Shrek in 2001.
Living life in a farm, a talking donkey, Donkey, mourns the days of being free and living his life. Whereas he is living as transportation for his owner Old MacDonald.
One day, MacDonald was down to his last piece of food, so he had to sell one of his animals, which was Donkey; much to the mule's dismay and shock. An old lady arrives for him and will give MacDonald her bag of magic beans in exchange for Donkey. Donkey manages to escape before they had entered. He knew he would be found by MacDonald, so Donkey had to hide far from him. After running all day, he decides to rest for the night. The next morning, he encounters a talking grasshopper.
