The movie is famous for some of the inspirational camera angles and frames, and with some of the most memorable cinematic scenes from Alfred Hitchcock.
A campus security guard pepper sprays s baby squirrel in front of school children, the squirrel squeals in pain as the children watch in horror; one of the students named "Lily" grabs the baby squirrel and she and her babysitter PJ takes the squirrel to the vet.
The next day Lilly, PJ and the vet release the baby squirrel back into the field and campers back into the forest. After returning to the forest the baby squirrel tells the other squirrels and other creatures of what occurred, soon the sound of chattering fills the forest
Soon the horde of squirrels will descend upon the small town; attacking everywhere including the tranquil park where both old and young had gathered to relax, play, and feed the squirrels but now the squirrels want something other than peanuts they want revenge!
