Pi Patel lives in Pondicherry, where his father owns a zoo. When he is 16, his parents decide to emigrate to Canada, taking their large family with them, but tragedy strikes when the cargo ship carrying them sinks during a storm. One solitary lifeboat remains bobbing on the wild blue Pacific. In it are five survivors: Pi, a hyena, a zebra (with a broken leg), a female orang-utan, and a 450 pound Royal Bengal Tiger. The scene is set for an extraordinary adventure.
