Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
In another, successful installation of the Australian "Dot" series, a new animation style and improved coordination between the cartoon Dot and friends, and the real background landscape, add to the story's charm. This time around, the environment is threatened out in the Tasmanian wilderness. It seems Mayor Percy the pig wants to give the go-ahead to a huge hydroelectric project that would destroy the ecology, the trees, the animals, and bring in pollution as well. When Bruce the Koala and his friends fail to make any gains in fighting the project, they call in Dot. Between the clever young girl and the outback animals, there must be some way to save Mother Nature.
