On sunny days Samson the Mammoth likes to tend his dandelion patch while he waits for a friend to appear. One day, a little red bird appears and asks if she can take some flowers to a friend who is having a bad day. When it starts to snow, Samson starts to worry about the red bird. He decides to look for her and make sure she is okay. Along the way, Samson finds a little mouse in the snow who is also looking for someone. They search together and find the red bird. Samson takes the bird and the mouse to a warm cave and the three become friends as they wait for the storm to pass.
