The movie opens with a Scientific Congress in which Professor Barbenfouillis (played by Melies) tries to convince his collegues to take part in a trip to explore the moon. Once his plan is accepted, the expedition is organized and the scientists are sent to the moon on a space ship. The missle-like ship lands right in the eye of the moon, which is represented as an anthropomorphic being. Once on the surface, the scientists soon meet the hostile inhabitants, the Selenites, who take them to their King. After discovering that the enemies easily disappear in a cloud of smoke with the simple touch of an umbrella, the French men manage to escape and return to earth. They fall into the ocean na explore the abyss until they are finally rescued and honored in Paris as heroes.
