In this adventure, a wild boy is discovered in the Malayan jungle by a married team of doctors. On the way back to civilization the boy is kidnapped by a wicked reporter. The boy escapes his clutches and takes to the Singapore streets to search for the kindly couple that rescued him. When a sultan asks the jungle boy to guide a medical team to the northern wilderness of his province to save the natives suffering from dysentery there, the boy agrees. When they arrive, the tribe at first does not trust the strangers. Only after the boy demonstrates his control over the animals, will the chief allow the doctors to inoculate them against the scourge. After the tribe is saved, the boy goes back to his beloved jungle.
