Yetis are real and live high in the mountains above the clouds hidden away from sight. Migo is a Yeti who lives among his people and follows the ancient stones held by the Stonekeeper who leads the village. Migo's father, Dorgle, wakes up every morning to ring the gong with his head so that the "light snail" can pass over the sky and bring them day. While learning how to ring the gong, Migo is distracted by the Stonekeeper's daughter, Meechee, and flies out of the village. He witness a plane crash and finds a "smallfoot", who the Yetis have taken for being just legends. Migo runs to tell the villagers what he saw, but has no proof and is labeled a liar by Stonekeeper who banishes him from the village if he continues to lie. Migo is suddenly visited by Gwangi, Kolka and Flem who bring him to the Smallfoot Evidentiary Society (S.E.S.) which is lead by Meechee as she feels that her father does not listen to her. She convinces Migo to go along with their plan of going below the clouds, despite the stones telling them that there is nothing underneath. After some hesitation, Migo agrees to go, but the rope he is tied to snaps and he falls through the clouds where he discovers land underneath.

At a local bar, Percy Patterson is a wildlife documentary filmmaker who has lost much of his fame. He meets the pilot who saw the Yeti and tries to convince his assistant Brenda to dress up as a Yeti so that they can film their exploits, but she abandons him instead. Migo arrives and scares Percy who tries to fight back, at what is simply Migo trying to communicate with him, and Percy accidentally knocks himself out. Migo takes him away and they stop by a cave to escape the blizzard where Percy films himself as a way to get help. He encounters a sleep deprived mama bear and Migo "saves" Percy by apologizing. While chasing after Percy, Migo gets his toe caught in a bear trap and Percy takes pity on him by bandaging his wound. Migo finally manages to get through to Percy who agrees to go with him and they head back up the mountain where they are reunited with the S.E.S.

The village is shocked, scared and confused by Percy's appearance, but they happily accept him and learn about his culture, much to Stonekeeper's consternation. Dorgle reveals to Migo that while trying to ring the gong that morning, he missed his cue and the sun rose by itself, scaring him as it left him feeling that he had no purpose. Stonekeeper takes Migo aside and reveals the truth to him: Yetis use to live below the clouds, but were scared away by the humans who feared them. To keep them safe, they created the stones that made the laws and rules. The various tasks that the Yetis do everyday actually power a machine beneath the village that creates the "clouds", actually steam. In order to protect the villagers, Migo agrees to keep up the lie by saying that Percy, who is beginning to experience high altitude sickness, is just a rare form of yak, angering the S.E.S. Stonekeeper then takes Percy and locks him away.

Feeling bad for betraying his friends, Dorgle convinces Migo to help Percy, but discovers that Meechee took him away to return him home. Migo, Gwangi and Kolka leave the village to go look for them. After dropping off Percy, Meechee becomes distracted by the lights in the city and begins to cause a disruption while Percy reunites with Brenda and discovers that he has become famous overnight due to his video. Meechee is attacked by the police, but is rescued by Migo and the rest who explains why he lied. They try to make it back to the mountain, but are chased by a helicopter that is taken down by the Stonekeeper using his stones. Percy arrives and using the Yeti costume leads the police away where he is arrested. He then deletes the videos and images of himself and Migo.

Back at the village, Migo and Stonekeeper explain the truth to the Yetis and state that while the humans may be scared and hard to understand, they should still try to communicate with them. They all head back down the mountain towards the village where they are confronted by police, but Percy and Brenda stand up for them. The film ends with the humans slowly welcoming the Yetis and accepting them into their lives.
