There is something noble inside of you.

Mosley and his family of four-legged Thoriphants live a worker’s life on an isolated farm owned by Simon, a sullen and mean-spirited farmer. One evening, after ploughing all day, Mosley’s son, Rue, comes bounding over to his father telling him he has discovered something magical in the woods near the farm. Bera, Mosley’s pregnant wife, encourages Mosely to go with Rue. Although Mosley is tired, he follows his young son into the woods and discovers the reason for Rue’s excitement—it’s a cave with large and ancient drawings on the walls. Drawings of Thoriphants similar to Mosley and Rue, except they stand upright! Is this what the Thoriphant race used to be? What happened to cause them to become hunched over creatures without hands?

In an attempt to free his family from a life of servitude and forced to leave his family behind, Mosley goes on a perilous journey to find the legendary Uprights while pursued by a brutal hunter, Warfield. Mosley must find the mighty Uprights and make it back to the farm before Warfield catches him, his new calf is born, and Rue is sold to another farmer forever.
