On their trip to Europe, the turtles, Splinter, April O'Neil and Irma are on a vacation in the Alps of Austria, which reminds Splinter of the mountains in his own native country, Japan.

Splinter goes to a nearby mountain to meditate. April and Irma visit an Alpine village when she notices that the ice and the snow is melting, unusual for this time of year. This has to do with Krang, who sent the Shredder to the village with a Zoetropic wave device to melt the worlds' ice, flooding the coastal cities and making the Earth easy for Krang and Shredder to take over. When April discovers this, Shredder sends out Bebop and Rocksteady to kidnap her. April leaves a clue for the turtles to find before she is captured.

Irma believes she has get a new boyfriend, Gustav, who helps the turtles until he turns out to be a robot sent out by Shredder to stop the turtles from finding Shredder's hideout, which is located on the mountain top. The turtles go to stop Shredder just as a gigantic glacier is about to crush the town. Donatello manages to reverse the temperature drop, and everything returns to normal.
