Synopsis

A Montreal writer in search of his next project happens across the incredible story of Piscine Militor Patel. Pi was born in Pondicherry, India in the 1970s and spends his days among tigers, zebras, hippos, and other exotic creatures at the zoo his father owns. He develops his own theories about faith, belief and human (and animal) nature - but after Pi attempts to befriend a Bengal tiger named Richard Parker, the young boy learns a harsh lesson about the relationship between human and beast. When Pi is 17, his parents decide that the family must emigrate to Canada to find a better life and board a cargo ship with all their belongings - including some animals from the zoo. Late in the night, a massive storm sinks the ship, but Pi miraculously survives. He is cast adrift in the middle of the Pacific Ocean aboard a lifeboat with a most unexpected traveling companion - Richard Parker. The two castaways face unimaginable challenges, but through it all, Pi finds joy and beauty in the watery world into which he has been cast.
