Three brothers go out hunting kangaroos, two elder brothers and a much younger one. The older brothers send their younger brother out first to round up the kangaroos and herd them in the direction of the elder brothers. The brothers wait a long time for their younger brother to return, but he does not come. While searching for him, they discover he has been taken by a big female kangaroo. The two older brothers track the kangaroo and eventually find their little brother. But he has changed, he has begun to turn into a kangaroo himself. Using their hunting skill and knowledge of Bush Law, the older brothers must find the big kangaroo and catch their younger brother and return him to human form.
