On a hill among hills, an old man lives with a strange collection of unwanted animals. Mutual fear and distrust keep the nearby villagers and the old man apart. One terrible stormy night, floodwaters threaten to engulf the little hill. It seems that the old man and his menagerie are doomed. Then, in the distance, a boat appears. Will someone from the village brave the elements and rescue the man - and his animals?
