Life is not all black and white for Khumba, a young zebra born with only half his stripes who is rejected by his superstitious herd and blamed for a sudden drought affecting the land.
Teaming up with a sassy wildebeest and a flamboyant ostrich, Khumba sets off on a daring mission across the Karoo desert to find the legendary waterhole where the first zebras got their stripes.
Along the way he meets a host of colorful characters, but before he can reunite with his herd, Khumba must come face to face with a menacing leopard and take place in an epic battle.
