The story of Figgy and Fiona searching for a home takes you through the risks and rewards of being a frog. After leaving their home, they try to find a safe haven, but the threats are many. Along their journey, they come upon a variety of creatures who will eat them, a barren neighborhood, a bull dozer, and a person spraying his garden to kill insects. Finally, they find a safe haven in the garden of a woman who loves frogs.
