On two sides of a mountain gorge far above the village live two loners: a benevolent herbalist Kosobrin and a mean poacher Bedanec, with whom serves a young girl Mojca. The girl tells Kosobrin about her hard life with Bedanec and the old man gives her shelter in his hut. Kosobrin fears Bedanec’s revenge and Bedanec indeed catches him and ties him to a tree. A courageous and playful shepherd Kekec saves Kosobrin, but Bedanec catches also him. The boy refuses to help the mean poacher to get to Mojca. Kekec’s father is looking for him in the mountains and in sadness concludes that an eagle has pushed Kekec off a cliff. Kekec saves himself and Kosobrin, and Bedanec starts searching for a secret mountain tunnel that leads to Kosobrin’s hut and Mojca. Kekec places an owl into the tunnel, which scares Bedanec immensely so he runs in panic and slips to be left hanging over a gorge. Kekec helps him, but under the condition that Bedanec leaves. Bedanec puts his hut on fire and departs, Mojca stays with Kosobrin, and Kekec returns to the village where everybody is joyeus to greet him.
