As a big storm approaches, two strangers arrive in the forest. All the animal families, safe in their homes, are worried, unsure of the strangers’ motives. So, when they ask for shelter, they are turned away at every door and the strangers are left to fend for themselves. But then the fox family is suddenly forced out into the storm, and they must ask these outsiders for help. Will they find it in their hearts to give it?
