When Steve convinces the star quarterback of The Langley Falls Bazooka Sharks to quit the team in the middle of a championship game, the entire town pursues him until he ships himself off to a tropical island. There, he is accepted but finds that everyone must work, and is employed weaving baskets. Magunga critiques his work, a tiny basket which takes him three months to complete. When he tries to ask for time off he is rejected.
When a rumbling announces that a volcano is erupting, they hurry outside to watch. Although Steve expects the worst, Magunga explains that it starts a competition between villages to roll boulders into the volcano.
