Act 1 A family of wolves is starting their day in the Seonee Jungle when they hear a strange cry. Investigating, they discover a human child has been left in the jungle. They take him into their home, but are being watched by the jackal Tabaqui. Tabaqui warns them that the tiger Shere Khan will hunt the child, and if they try to protect him, their family will be in danger. After chasing Tabaqui away, the wolf mother and father decide to present the child to the wolf council. Though the other wolves protest at first, they eventually agree to take in the child after Bagheera presents them a bull to feast on. Baloo, the bear. offers to train him alongside the wolf children. And Akela, the wolf king, declares the child part of the tribe, naming him Mowgli.

Act 2 As Mowgli grows, he learns the ways of the jungle, playing with the wolf cubs and escaping from menacing monkeys. However, Shere Khan is still plotting against him. Tabaqui has convinced half the wolves to overthrow Akela, and he offers Shere Khan the position of their new king. When Mowgli hears of their plan, he flees to the human village to steal man’s red flower, fire, so he will be ready for the day when he finally faces Shere Khan.

Act 3 Now elderly, Akela has fallen ill and grown weak. Seeing his chance, Shere Khan decides to make his move for the throne, backed by Tabaqui and several of the wolves. After a fierce battle, Mowgli manages to chase Shere Khan off. However, he has been betrayed by the wolves he considered his brothers. Knowing he is no longer welcome in the jungle, Mowgli decides to leave the Seonee Jungle to join the villagers.

Act 4 Though Mowgli grows into his new role as cowherd in the village, he misses the peace and camaraderie of the jungle. He is pleasantly surprised when Akela and Grey Brother come to see him, but his happiness is short-lived as his friends come bearing bad news. Shere Khan has returned and is seeking revenge on Mowgli. Akela devises a plan, and the three of them prepare for the final showdown. Together, they defeat the ferocious Shere Khan. However, upon seeing Mowgli with the wolves, the villagers come to fear and hate him. Seeing that the village is full of animosity and strife, Mogwli happily returns to the Seonee, his true home.
