Plot summary

In April 1943, the 20th Phantom and Buran are concerned about a raging elephant that creates havoc to jungle villages. An orphaned child, Ajibayo, is taken to a mission run by the nuns from Convent Island.

In Tunis in North Africa the war is going on between Britain and Germany. Captain Braune of the SS is prepared to hand over a decoding machine to the Allies if he and his men are picked up by a British submarine off the coast of Bengali. The British pretend to agree and captain Braune and his men arrive in the Deep Woods dressed like British soldiers.
