This is a story about what happens when the elders are disobeyed.
In one particular village, the elders, who were used to total obedience, requested a gift of a cow at a funeral. They were pretty confident they would get it. But they were given a goat instead by the relatives of the deceased. Naturally, they rejected it.
So, the people thought it would be a great idea to take the goat to the elders and apologise.
But it was then that they encountered a big problem. Could they overcome it and appease the elders?
