Ivan is an easygoing gorilla. Living at the Exit 8 Big Top Mall and Video Arcade, he rarely misses his life in the jungle. Instead, he thinks about TV shows, his friends and his art. Then he meets Ruby, a baby elephant taken from her family, and she makes Ivan see their home --- and his own art --- through new eyes. When Ruby arrives, change comes with her, and it’s up to Ivan to make it a change for the better.
