[ Story ]

This is the story of Indian elephants; a bull, the leader of a herd of twenty, a cow and a cub.
The cub lives happily with its parents, and every morning they go to a river to bathe and return to their jungle for food. But all the leaves and twigs of the jungle are soon eaten and, led by the bull the herd must search for new postures. After travelling for many days the mating season arrives, and a young bull elephant challenges the leader for the favours of the cow. A bloodthirsty fight ensues and the old bull, the father of the cub, is defeated and loses his position as leader.
Led by its new leader the herd resumes its journey. But the cub and his mother are stricken with grief when the old bull dies from wounds inflicted by the new leader, and trudge behind the herd, leaving the dead bull in the jungle.
Soon another misfortune strikes them when the cub falls into a pit prepared by the aborigines, and is captured.
However, the new leader of the herd leads them in attacking the village of the aborigines, and the next day the mother and her cub are reunited and back with the herd.
A charming story beautifully told in Daiei Eastman Color to delight audiences of all ages.
