A circus drives through a small village at night. The next morning the locals find a tigress and her cub in a carrier box and immediately welcome them. But then the circus returns for the animals and the villagers have to give them back in the custody of animal trainer Valentino. When they all go to the circus to see the show, everybody witnesses how cruel the man treats the tigers. So the whole village gets together on a plan to rescue the big cats and find them a better home. A fresh and perky puppet animation.
