When a horrible storm scatters a group of elephants, one tiny member of the herd is left behind in the noisy jungle. Lost and scared, he first asks the monkeys for help, but they respond by throwing coconuts at him. The little elephant continues wandering alone, and just as he starts to feel that all hope is lost, he comes across a buffalo herd that makes him feel protected and safe. When his elephant herd returns, the little elephant is faced with a difficult decision—does he go with the elephants or stay with the buffalos?


Cuando una tormenta horrible dispersa a un grupo de elefantes, un miembro pequeño se queda atrás en la selva ruidosa. Perdido y asustado, primero pide ayuda a los monos, pero en respuesta ellos le tiran cocos. El elefanito continúa caminado solo, empezando sentir cómo ha perdido toda la esperanza, cuando viene a través de un grupo de búfalos que le hace sentir protegido y seguro. Cuando su grupo de elefantes regresa, el elefanito tiene una decisión difícil—¿debe irse con los elefantes o quedarse con los búfalos?
