Sokwe the Chimp has been fishing since early morning and comes home with a load of fish to sell at the market the next day. As he pulls up to the riverbank, he sees that his friends are having a party and he joins in the fun. But as he carries the fish up to stow them away, Dog catches sight of the mouth-watering catch. The next day Sokwe and his friends pile into his truck to take their goods to market. Dog tags along with them, with a devious plan to steal Sokwe's fish. Will he succeed?

This colorful cast of animals provides children with a rich and fascinating portrait of traditional African village life.
