Ivan is a gorilla in captivity. Life wasn't always that way, but he has trouble remembering a time when he wasn't living in a shopping mall. In his cage, he draws with crayon and paper, gifted to him from his human friend. There is no doubt that Ivan is special. And he's always been the star of the show. Until the day a little elephant named Ruby enters his world and shows him the significance of the place we call home.
