Walter Mitty (Ben Stiller) is a negative assets manager (photographs) at Life magazine who frequently daydreams of fantastic adventures, and has a crush on his coworker Cheryl (Kristen Wiig). Photojournalist Sean O’Connell (Sean Penn), who works closely with Mitty concerning his submissions, has sent him a package containing his latest negatives and a wallet as a gift in appreciation of Walter’s excellent work. Furthermore, that package contains a special photograph, negative 25, that he says in writing captures the “Quintessence” of Life and that it should be used for the cover of the magazine’s final print issue as it converts to online status. Unfortunately, that specific negative is missing from the package and Mitty is forced to stall the obnoxious corporate transition manager Ted Hendricks (Adam Scott) handling the downsizing. Using the other negatives as clues, Mitty figures out that O’Connell is in Greenland and flies there to try and find him.
Arriving in Greenland, Walter goes to a bar asking about Sean. The bartender explains that he is already gone on a ship, and to find him, Walter would need to go on the postal helicopter, and the pilot is drunkenly singing a karaoke version of “Don’t You Want Me” in the bar. Walter declines to fly with a drunken pilot but imagines Cheryl singing to him “Space Oddity”, gains a new confidence, and jumps on board the helicopter. Nearing the ship, Walter learns the helicopter cannot land onto the ship. Walter misunderstood the pilot thinking he had to jump onto the ship where there was a boat nearing to catch him but then dived into ice-cold, shark-infested waters before he can be brought on board. In doing so, he realizes this whole adventure is actually happening as opposed to his daydreams. The sailors remember Sean, even offering Walter cake he left behind, and Walter discovers another clue in the wrapping paper. His journey continues to Iceland, where Sean has gone to photograph the volcano Eyjafjallajökull. The eruption prevents Walter from finding Sean and he is forced to break off the search after receiving a text message telling him to return to New York immediately.
For his failure, his first professional loss in his long career with the magazine, Walter is fired and is even more disheartened to find that Cheryl, who was let go earlier, seems to have reconciled with her estranged husband. Walter returns home, thoroughly discouraged, and throws away the wallet when he visits his mother (Shirley MacLaine) and to his surprise she mentions having met Sean. She had told him before but while daydreaming he had failed to hear her. He then finds a new clue to continue to hunt for Sean. Mitty eventually tracks down O’Connell in the Himalayas, trying to photograph a rare snow leopard, and asks about the missing negative. Sean explains that the message about taking a closer look was literal: the negative was in the wallet. Walter joins him in a soccer game with some locals. He then flies to Los Angeles but is arrested by airport security, and calls the only person he knows in Los Angeles; Todd Maher (Patton Oswalt), a representative at eHarmony who has kept in contact through his adventures.
Walter returns home and helps his mother sell her piano, he mentions he does not have a wallet anymore. His mother says she always keeps his knick knacks and she produces the wallet he had thrown out. Without looking at the picture, an emboldened Mitty delivers it to Life magazine, tells management that it was the photograph Sean O’Connell wanted for the final issue, and berates Hendricks for disrespecting the staff that made the magazine so honored.
Walter reunites with Cheryl when they receive their severance packages and learns that Cheryl’s ex-husband was only at her house in order to repair the refrigerator. Heartened by this turn of events, Walter and Cheryl see the final issue of the magazine on the newsstand, with its cover saluting the staff. It is revealed that the photograph shows Walter sitting outside the Life building, holding a sheet of negatives up to the light and examining with an eyepiece.
