On a dark and stormy night, goat Mei and wolf Gav find shelter in an
old shack where they can't see each other. And not knowing that they are
each other's mortal enemy by nature, they start talking and quickly become
good friends - and they set up a date for a picnic the next day, and since
they don't know what the other looks like, they agree on a codeword, Stormy
The next day, the two friends at first are shocked when they find out
they are each others mortal enemy, but when Mei overcomes his fear and Gav
his urge to eat this goat, they become close friends and meet more and
more often - but always in secret, since neither Gav's wolfpack nor Mei's
herd of goats are to ever find out.
Then though Gav learns that his wolfpack is to make an attack on
exactly the spot where he is to meet Mei - and he only just manages to
save his friend ... however, this action hasn't gone unseen by neither the
wolves or the goats, and both Mei and Gav are threatened with expulsion -
unless they spy each other out. Both Gav and Mei realize though they
cannot betray their friendship, so they make an escape together via the
river and over the mountains, where they are snowed in and find abode in a
When they are both out of food, Mei suggests to his friend to eat him,
so at least one of them survives - but Gav just can't and rather leaves
the cave. Then he runs into his old pack, who are after him and his goat
friend, and soon it's a fight of everyone against Gav that is only cut
short by an avalanche that buries and kills them all - only Gav can
Eventually, Mei leaves his cave and finds the Promised Land
right in the next valley. There he also meets Gav again, but thing is, Gav
has lost his memory and now wants to follow his natural instincts and eat
the goat - and nothing Mei tells him can make him decide otherwise ...
until Mei mentions their codeword Stormy Night, which triggers his
memory and supplies the film with a happy ending after all.
Sure the film is cheesy, after all it's the story about a goat and a
wolf becoming friends, but actually the tearjerking level is kept as low
as possible, and fun character designs - especially of the wolves, being
reminiscent of both Road Runner's Wile E.Coyote and Tex
Avery's various wolves - help to keep the story lively. That's not to say
the film is perfect, its premise is of course pure kitsch, and some of the
CGI-3D animation is so meaningless in the context of the story it's almost
annoying, but in all the film is totally watchable.
