Gwai is having a hard time catching fish, so Frog tells him to find the greatest hunter of all, the Sea Wolf. The Sea Wolf offers to help, but only if Gwai agrees to carve him a totem. Gwai agrees, and the Sea Wolf fills his nets with fish, but Gwai takes credit for the catch himself and forgets to build the totem. Angry, the Sea Wolf takes all the fish from the village in the middle of the night. The other men decide to hunt the Sea Wolf, but Gwai goes back into the woods, and working day and night, creates a totem for the Sea-Wolf, who forgives him and returns the fish.
