The animals at the Mullewapp farm lead a normal country life – until they receive an unexpected visitor: Johnny Mauser, who says he's a famous actor and really mixes things up at Mullewapp. Everyone wants to hear Johnny's funny stories and they all think he's a real hero. Only Franz the rooster is miffed by Johnny's presence. Johnny's got everyone wrapped around his little finger, even Franz's favorite hen Marilyn!

In the middle of all the good cheer, suddenly they get word that Cloud the lamb has disappeared, apparently kidnapped. The whole farm is in an uproar. But hey, isn't a real hero there too? Together with Waldemar and Franz, Johnny is ordered to save Cloud. Now they have to all three bond together. They take off on Waldemar's bike and a great adventure begins...
