Caught on the river in a flash flood, Korak and Akut take refuge on a large uprooted tree that floats past. However, there is also a large nandi bear at the other end, so the pair leap off and swim for an island that splits the river just before it tumbles over a giant falls. They have to climb a cliff and finally reach a cave, where they find strange miniature cave paintings and tiny footprints. Following the passage, they emerge on the interior of the island, and see a plain with tribesmen herding eland, but the visual perspective seems strange. Korak realizes that the entire scene is a miniature. A storm drives the eland across the field and into the ditch where Korak and Akut are watching, enabling them to catch the cattle and set them back. The tiny yellow men run away. Korak and Akut walk across the field to find a full sized airplane with damaged landing gear. That night they sleep in the open, but awaken to find a troop of tiny archers firing poisoned darts into their legs, paralyzing them. Like a scene from Gulliver's Travels, a king and court arrive to sit in judgement. Korak's defense attorney can communicate with Korak telepathically by touching his forehead. He sentences Korak and Akut to either leap back into the river, join other giant captives in a pit to starve, or be slain by the archers. Korak tries to get him to let him repair the plane but the leader refuses. Korak elects to be taken to the pit, where he meets an archeologist and his daughter. They vote to try to swim for it rather than starve, so the little warriors take them to a cliff overlooking the river. Suddenly the nandi bear appears, ravaging the countryside. Korak and Akut attack the brute, and Korak kills it by throwing sand in its face and then climbing on behind its back and stabbing it. In gratitude, the king allows Korak to repair the plane. With the aid of Akut's powerful arms, they straighten the landing gear. Because the plane is so small, Korak has to ride on the top outside of the craft, but they manage to get aloft and across the river to safety.
