A woman catches a fox drinking her glass of milk and cuts off his tail. The fox begs her for his tail back, and she agrees to return it if the fox replaces the milk he stole. The fox approaches a series of other animals and people, each of whom wants something in return for their help. After fulfilling everybody's needs, the woman sews the fox's tail back onto him.
