Fed up with getting teased about his flat teeth, a hungry young lion named Mogo crafts a scary mask with monstrously sharp teeth. Mogo loves his mask. With one "ROAR!!!" he can take anything and everything he pleases, including a cool motorcycle that takes him far from home. One day, he meets Finn, an old tortoise who will not allow Mogo to take his lunch. Nor is Finn content letting Mogo believe that scaring others makes him powerful.
