Three hungry goats roam the South African landscape where, just across the bridge, there is a koppie�a small hill in the midst of the land�that is covered in sweet, green grass and would be delicious to eat. They're too afraid of the fierce monster that lives beneath the bridge to cross, until one day they are hungry enough to try. Each goat must test their bravery and attempt outsmarting the monster, or else be gobbled up. A retelling of a beloved children's fable, this story reflects African contexts while maintaining the universal qualities of the original.
