A creature named Nessie lives happily in a small pond with her friend MacQuack, a rubber duck. When a rich developer takes the pond and land surrounding it to build a miniature golf course, Nessie is forced to search for a new home.

When she cannot cry anymore, she finds that her tears have created the Loch, a new home for her and MacQuack.
