When a tiger named Shere Khan wants to make a defenseless young girl his next meal, a family of wolves steps in to save the child, who they call Mowgli. Together with Balou the bear and Bagheera the panther, Mowgli learns how to live in the jungle and stay away from Shere Khan, who hates all mankind. Growing up in the dangerous Indian jungle, Mowgli must discover what family and friendship really mean.
