This is a children’s theatre musical focusing on the hunger and thirst animals experience in the jungle. The elephant has a dream about a swallow leading the animals in prayer, hoping for the drought to end. When reality strikes, the elephant discusses this matter with the swallow and the lion, the king of the jungle, who informs the animal kingdom. 
On a particular day, a prayer meeting is held amongst the animals, the lion suggests the swallow lead them in prayer, igniting conflict and chaos amongst all the animals. The animals cannot accept a small bird, like the swallow, as their leader. The swallow does not spend a lot of time with the other animals in the jungle, regularly migrating to further territories. 
Fights and disagreements arise amongst the animals until a settlement is reached on who has to lead and pray for the rain. Eventually the lion takes the decision - the swallow will lead them in prayer. A while later, it rained! Drought was never experienced again in the jungle and that brought reconciliation to the animals.
