Short Synopsis

Ngiri is the Smallest Warthog in Africa. Tired of being teased, he wishes things could be different. When old Nyumbu the Wildebeest gives him a set of magic drums, he is sure his wish is about to come true. But the animals in the Jungle are in for a big surprise when Ngiri’s wish is granted in a most unexpected way.
