The Story

After the sinking of the cargo ship that was ferrying his family and some animals to Canada, sixteen-year-old Pi finds himself stranded on a lifeboat with five survivors. Sailing through the harsh and unforgiving sea, Pi and an orang-utan, a badly-wounded zebra, a hyena, and a tiger make their way on an epic adventure. It is not long before he’s left with — Richard Parker — the tiger and his hopes of surviving dwindle on every passing day. With a journey that pushes the two to their limits, will Pi be able to endure the merciless nature and make his way to the seashore once again?
