In Jamma-Land, Independance is coming. The Jamma-land Community Cultural Group, under the leadership of Miss Mac is preparing for the celebrations – but there are distractions. Dreama, a woman who sees things, has a message - Anansi a come! Anansi hasn't been seen in years and no one can remember when last an Anansi story has been told, so no one takes “Mad Dreama” seriously.

Marcus, an ambitious young farmer has big dreams for his farm, but money is tight and his Animulls – Goat, Man Cow and Pig have been behaving badly and it is costing Marcus as he replaces items destroyed by his Animulls. No Menu or Dance poster is safe from the Animulls especially if there is mention of curry goat, barbecue or beef burgers.

Meanwhile, Anansi and his family are living in Farrin as a result of his being exported because of suspicion that he is a don. He’s having a hard time with his shopaholic wife Mrs. Anansi and his quarrelsome son Boothoo (with an aitch) and daughter Yeb-Yeb (with a phone). Furthermore, Anansi is running low on vim, vigour and vitality and the only way to recover is by getting his favourite treat - Goat head soup. So, he decides it is time to go home to Jamma land where that culinary item is available.

The arrival of the Anansi family turns Jamma Land upside down and inside out. How will Goat and the other Animulls keep themselves off the Menu? Will goat keep his head? Can Marcus' get a break from his struggles? Will Jamma Land see a happy Indepen-dance? And the biggest question of all, will Anansi get his goat head soup? Stand by for further announcements.
