One night, Mowgli's desires of returning to his jungle home become reality. Unfortunately, this causes great concern from his girlfriend Shanti and the rest of the village. What Mowgli doesn't realize is that the tiger Shere Khan (Tony Jay) anxiously awaits another meeting with the young cub, so he can settle old scores.
