Andi works with her aunt on a llama farm. She is tired of doing chores and cleaning up after them. She sees three llamas who seem to be doing their own thing away from the others and decides that she wants to play with them. Lulu the Llama warns her that these are drama llamas and Andi should steer clear of them.
What Andi discovers is the three llamas are trapped in the triangle of drama. There is Bully Bart, Victim Viv and Fixer Fred. Andi finds that each of these llamas are so locked into the choices they have made that none of them want to change enough to stop. With Lulu’s help, Andi realizes that she doesn’t have to get caught up in their drama. She can make her own choices to change the way she thinks and behaves.
