Mole has never seen a river until he encounters his water-loving friend Rat. Along with their less-than-social friend Badger, these friends of the Wild Wood try to help their friend Toad, who is obsessed with stealing and crashing motorcars. While Toad is put in jail for the abuse of property, the sneaky weasels take over Toad Hall. Mole, Rat, and Badger must find a way to bring Toad back to his senses and law-abiding order back to the Wild Wood.
