In the Flood Plains, Basi and Beshte are creating Hippo Lanes, paths that enable the Pride Landers to cross the Flood Plains after a rain storm without getting lost. Suddenly, they hear someone crying for help: It's a young rhino. He's caught in the reeds of the Flood Plains and worse Makuu is about to eat him. Basi and Beshte arrive in time and get Makuu to back off by reminding him that the Flood Plains are a safe zone after a rain storm. They then get the rhino out of the vines. The Lion Guard arrives to check on the progress of the Hippo Lanes since the Staple Antelopes' grazing grounds are flooded and another storm is coming requiring them to cross the Flood Plains to get them to drier grounds. They quickly discover that Basi was hurt while freeing the young rhino. Basi decides to have Beshte take over making the Hippo Lanes while the rest of the guard escorts the antelopes.
Beshte instantly gets to work making the Hippo Lanes but he gets distracted by giving other animals rides. Meanwhile, the rest of the Guard escorts Bupu's Herd to the Flood Plains to cross them. This task quickly proves difficult as Bupu won't stop complaining nonstop about them telling his whole herd what to do. Meanwhile, Ono sees the Hippo Lanes and shows Beshte who instantly realizes that he messed up and the herd will get lost in the Flood Plains and sends Ono back to warn the Guard while he goes to get help. Ono arrives only to find the rest of the Guard already let a female antelope and her baby in. Kion and Ono go in after them and succeed.
Meanwhile, Beshte and Basi succeed in making a perfect Hippo Lane. However Basi gets left behind and gets attacked by Makuu and his Float. Fuli politely asks Bupu's Herd to take the new path Beshte made and Bupu instantly agrees. Beshte gets rid of Makuu's Float by tricking them into getting trampled on by Bupu's Herd. The guard then leads Bupu's Herd to dry ground.
