The kids try to figure out what a Shadow is and learn a lot about them.
One day, Peppa goes out to play with George and Rebecca to play Piggy In The Middle. This goes on for sometime until George is distracted by the shadow being cast by the ball. Peppa shows him this, and Rebecca points out that even they have shadows. She then tells them that you cannot escape your own shadow, and they are joined by Suzy.
She claims that people can't run away from their shadow, and she makes an attempt to ride away instead, by using her scooter. But as it turns out, the shadow is still there. After they are joined by Mr. Elephant, Emily, and Edmond. Mr. Elephant shows them that no matter what he does, his shadow would not leave him.
Together with Edmond, they then explain that a shadow is something that gets in the way of the sun. As such, their parents would have big shadows due to their size, while Edmond and George have the smallest shadows, as they are the most little. They happen to spot a giant shadow, but Mr. Elephant shows them that it is a big cloud blocking the sun instead.
Emily then happens to spot that their shadows have become longer in shape, and it is explained that this is due to the sun's position. The sunlight then leaves, and it is explained that because of it being gone, the shadow leaves. Peppa and George are called into bed soon after, so they say goodbye to everyone and head inside.
In bed, Peppa expresses sadness in no longer seeing her shadow. But Mummy claism it will return, and in the mean time, they turn on a light to make shadow puppets on the wall nearby. After George makes a dinnosaur, they all share a laugh. Mummy Pig then turns out the light after wishing them, and their shadows, a good night.
