Everything goes well in nature until the day when a human, a woodcutter, comes into the forest. He wants to build a house for himself and with that in mind, he winds up destroying the houses of the squirrel, the fox, the woodpecker, the hippo and other animals. But a flood ends up carrying his house away.
The animals lose their homes and are sad and the man loses his home and all his possessions in the flood. The animals have compassion for him and he realizes his mistake. He comes to realize in fact, that the forest is for everyone; for the squirrel, the fox, the woodpecker, the bear and for humans too.
