Tubs Marshfield, a frog who loves to play music, has lived in the swamp for his whole life. Everyone is happy, but lately, animals have started getting sick and no one can figure out why. So, Tubs decides to visit Pythia, the fortune-telling alligator. Pythia is unsure of what is causing the sicknesses, but she tells Tubs that he must leave the swamp to avoid bringing misery to his friends and family and to realize his musical dreams. As he decides whether to leave the swamp, Tubs is able to figure out the source of everyone's sickness and what he wants for his own future.
