Sokwe the Chimp has been fishing since early morning and has come home with a load of fish. He can already imagine the price his catch will fetch at the market the next day. As he pulls up to the riverbank, he sees that his friends the other animals are having a party. He can’t resist joining in. But as he carries the fish up to stow them away, Dog catches sight of the mouth-watering catch.
The next day Sokwe loads his truck with his catch along with his other friends who are bringing produce or goods to market. Dog joins them. Sure enough he is soon sniffing at the baskets of fish. And he comes up with a devilish scheme to steal them.
Despite many twists and turns in the plot (including Lion breaking his leg as he tries to pursue Dog, visits to the hospital and a very exciting soccer match) justice finally catches up with Dog and he is put on trial. His punishmentto plant a field full of trees on Tree Planting Day - is quickly carried out, and finally Dog and Chimp are reconciled. Even Lion is forgiving.
