As the guardian of the forest, the big bad wolf silently guards a beautiful forest and the small animals living there. Suddenly one day, a glib logger and his cronies want to cut down the forest and build a new community. Only the wolf can stop them, but the lumberjack spreads rumors and puts the friendship of wolf and friends to the test... You'll find that sometimes even the gentlest animal has to be a little mean.
