Cat and Dog are domestic pets who are spoilt by their owners. One night they go to sleep and when they wake, they find themselves in the middle of a dark forest. The wild animals in the forest see them and set them physical and psychological trials. Cat and Dog survive and even make friends with the wild animals. They bond with nature discovering they are more resourceful and resilient than they realised. After their long day, they go to sleep under the stars, when they wake they are back at home. The first scene with their owners is replayed but all has changed for the better.
