The story begins in Montreal and ends in Montreal. A writer (Rafe Spall) looking for inspiration stumbles upon the legend of Pai Patel (Irrfan Khan). Sent father (Adil Hussain Adil Hussain) opened a zoo. Because of such a special living environment, the Juvenile School (played by Suraj Sharma) has its own views on faith and human nature. When Pai was 17 years old, his parents decided to immigrate to Canada with his family in pursuit of a better life, and he had to leave his first love. On the boat to Canada, they met a cruel French chef (Gérard Depardieu). In the middle of the night that day, in the vast sea, the storm that originally made Pai feel extremely exciting turned into a catastrophe that swallowed the cargo ship in an instant. Pie survived miraculously, drifting in the Pacific Ocean in a lifeboat, but also had a most unexpected companion-Richard Parker, a Bengal tiger. The magical adventure started unexpectedly…
