Bermooda is a tropical island that is undiscovered by the outside world and is primarily populated by walking, talking cows of human intelligence. The cows came to the island hundreds of years ago by a ship carrying livestock that wrecked upon the shoals around the southern tip of the island. They have since formed their own quaint, mootpian tropical island society. Life is good on Bermooda, and the residents are mostly content to be unknowing of and unknown to the world beyond their horizons. Bermooda has no "outsiders," and most prefer to keep it that way. That is, until Chuck ventures into the boneyard alone and discovers a young human boy who has been washed up unconscious on the sandbar The young boy's name is Dakota and doesn't seem as scary as Chuck thought humans should be. Chuck decides to "cow-mouflage" Dakota to pass as a bovine in town. Dakota and Chuck become fast friends, but trouble is brewing and Dakota's true identity is at risk of being discovered. In the end, Chuck's family adopts Dakota as their own calf.
