Wombats live in Australia. The fluffy animals look harmless and cute – almost like cuddly stuffed animals, but they are real power houses that use their strong hind legs to defend themselves. If another animal threatens a wombat in its den, the latter uses its back to crush the skull of its opponent. The film takes the viewers into the world of wombats. Thanks to a snake-like robot camera, even extraordinary shots from a wombat cave and images of a battle can be seen.
