Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it’s no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her life when her father starts a new job. Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness. The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. Although Joy, Riley’s main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.
Fear does his best to protect Riley and keep her safe. There are very few things that he has not found to be dangerous.
