PlotEdit

In the third and the last part of the film trilogy about Kekec (Zlatko Krasnič), evil wild poacher Bedanec (Polde Bibič) appears again. Kekec and his friends are there to chase and hunt Bedanec again and sent him far away. Bedanec catches Brincelj (Milorad Radovič) and Rožle (Boris Ivanovski). Very brave Kekec saves both of them with the help of his wisdom and tricks Bedanec, who catches in his own trap that he set.

Kekec saves Bedanec out of the trap because he asks him nicely, however he doesn't learn anything out of this. Will maybe wise man Vitranc (Jože Zupan) bring peace in these places...
