Red Riding Hood and her sisters run away from home to escape the Bad Baron. On their way to Grandma's cottage they meet Lupe, a hungry wolf. They are rescued by Basil, the Baron's steward (who has become tired of being a villain and wants to be a hero instead) but Lupe gets away and reaches the cottage ahead of time. There he finds that Grandma shares his interest in food and they settle down to cooking together. When Red Riding Hood arrives Lupe dresses in Grandma's clothes to try to trap her but Basil comes to the rescue again. Lupe surrenders and promises to help dispose of the wicked Baron. He does so and everyone lives happily ever after.
