As the movie starts, Lobo, our lead character, starts out with the first full-blown adventure that he would ever encounter. He topples down a cliff when his father leaves him with his brothers and sisters. When he is finally able to climb back up, danger awaits in the form of a cougar. Luckily, before the cougar can harm the pups, he is shot down by some cattlemen who happen to spot the cougar. The wolves escape the wrath of the cattlemen as they are too small to be visible from long range.

He goes on to leave his family, lead a pack of wolves, choose a mate for himself and explore life on his own. The pack hunts herds of cattle that pass by. This makes the cattlemen furious. They plan to take revenge. What happens when the angry folk start their campaign against Lobo and his wolf pack? Is Lobo able to keep the pack out of danger?
