Heroes aren't born heroes. They're called to duty unexpectedly. A desert dog with humble beginnings risks his life to keep an important promise.
Life takes strange turns for a puppy born in the desert. After his first owners suffer a tragic loss, a free-range cattle farmer adopts him. When the pup arrives at the farm, far from his birth place, not everyone welcomes him. A member of his new family doubts whether he would ever be a good working dog and their old bull-terrier makes life unpleasant for him. But as time goes by, he grows into a strong, agile dog, finding many loyal, furry-and-feathered friends. They help him to keep a promise; protecting vulnerable bush creatures.
An elusive bird with unusual, pink eyelids tells their stories about fires, villainous poachers, hilarious misunderstandings, happy reunions and many kind humans, who support them after a while. Their stories reveal why not all humans speak Faunalang and why it is always better to treat goats with respect. Despite ups and downs, this desert dog becomes a loyal protector of Fauna Park - their own secret sanctuary. Here he becomes loved by friends and feared by foes - in a land where the sun always lingers longer before it disappears behind the horizon.
