In the majestic mountains of India, Monkey spends her days playing with her animal friends in a lovely jungle, but she notices that it has become hot and dry and the rain hasn’t fallen in the rainforest for many weeks. Monkey’s mother tells her of an old legend that a dancing peacock can bring the rains. But when Monkey and her friend Baby Elephant try dancing to no avail, she decides she must go on a quest to find the magical Peacock and return water to the jungle.
