Three girls are left at home while their mother goes to visit their grandmother. Lon Po Po is the wolf who comes to their house, pretending to be their grandmother. The oldest girl sees through the wolf's trick and plots to get rid of him once and for all. The girls manage to trick him into a basket at the top of the tree and then drop the basket so that he falls to his death.
