What if someone told you that they knew a story that would make you believe in God? That’s what a writer, played by Rafe Spall, is told about Pi’s adventurous and unbelievable story about a zoo packed into a boat that capsizes at sea. The story starts with a boy named Pi who grows up in his father’s zoo in India. As the zoo continues to lose money, Pi’s family decides to pick up and move everything. As the ship capsizes in one of the most visually intense scenes going back to Titanic, Pi hitches a ride on a lifeboat with a zebra, and more hidden surprises. Pi finds himself alone, his family dead, on the open sea full of sharks and other dangers. His only hope is to survive on the lifeboat and find refuge.
