The animals form a night brigade after an encounter with a blood-thirsty snake, and just in time because something is threatening their night realm. Animals are disappearing without a trace. Together with a wombat and band of coyotes, Dawn, Tobin and Bismark journey to the depths of the earth in a wacky game that will determine all of their survival.
