Pi Patel and his family decide that life in India under Indira Gandhi is not a pleasant one. In their effort to seek a better life for themselves and their children, the Patel parents choose Canada as a peaceful, life-affirming destination. They sell their zoo in Pondicherry, India, and they board a freight ship for the new world, taking along some of their animals. At the beginning of their journey, the ship sinks and Pi's life takes a different turn. We travel along with Pi on his life's journey through his childhood in Pondicherry and his oceanic survival for 277 days alone in a lifeboat with only a Bengal tiger as a companion. The story promises an adventure that some may find hard to believe. Can miracles exist? What is the power of faith? What guarantees survival?
