At Shikhargunj, a leadership cirsis has arisen, ...Sher Bahadur, its sole tiger has taken sanyas and a bitter struggle for succession has broken out. Top contender, Dhoomdham, the clumsy, drooling leopard must bring the head of the chief forest offiicer's little daugher, Aranya, to the Waterhole of the Truce to stake his claim. But then the HOrde arrives and all hell breaks loose as a dangerous 'hostage crisis' develops.
