As primitive mud people follow a croquet ball through the forest, the trail ends at a Long Island estate. Although no one is home, the mud people don clothes found on the estate, become civilized, and party as if they were upper-class society. But, civilization isn't far from the savage state as is shown when party-goers follow a croquet ball that is hit back into the forest and they re-enter their primitive world.
