The old storyteller tells how he met a speaking kangaroo, and how this kangaroo and its friends showed him and the young people with him the magical world the kangaroos live in, where the visitors saw how the kangaroos built their homes in the trees and caves. They learnt how the kangaroos are able to weave cane baskets as well as many other things made out of cane. They were shown the kangaroos magical silkworms that give silk of many different colours: this the kangaroos use to make fabrics. There were also tree roos who fly through the trees like magic, and another group of renegade and bloodthirsty kangaroos hell-bent on killing peaceful kangaroos and taking over and then killing all humans. The visitors also learnt of a threat to the magical rain forest by logging companies. The old storyteller tells of magical ceremonies and the tales the kangaroos tell of their past. The old man and the young people must help the kangaroos save their forest and battle against the bloodthirsty kangaroos.
