This SA-made animated treat is about a half-striped zebra who is blamed for the lack of rain by the rest of his superstitious herd. Desperate to clear his name, he embarks on a daring quest to earn his stripes. In his search for the legendary waterhole in which the first zebras got their stripes, he meets a quirky range of characters, and teams up with an unlikely duo: an overprotective wildebeest, and a self-obsessed, flamboyant ostrich. But before he can reunite with his herd, he will have to come face to face with a sadistic leopard who controls the waterholes and terrorizes all the animals in the Great Karoo.
