Every year, monsoon rains sweep the Indian subcontinent, dramatically changing the diverse habitats in their path and the lives of the animals in them. The documentary portrays the wet season's effects on creatures great and small: elephants and frogs, tigers and monkeys, rhinos and leeches. Assam, India receives 250 inches of rain a year, but to the south, Cherrapunji receives more than 600 inches. This onslaught is always destructive and often deadly, but it also turns fields green, makes ponds where baby chicks learn to swim and gives water buffalo a banquet of grass to graze on.
