John Wilson is an American director on the verge of starting to shoot his new movie set in Africa. While his producer Paul Landers is trying to work out a deal with British investors, John takes along the script writer Pete Verrill in the London shops in order to choose a pair of rifles. The director is more obsessed by the idea of hunting elephants in Africa than his new movie.
Once in Africa, John hires guides to lead him to the elephants and leaves the movie crew, the actors and the producer in the middle of the African savanna. Although Pete Verril admires the iconoclast flair of his friend, he is also irritated by his egoism amd threatens to abandon the production.
