Didier lives life as a normal, largish elephant in Mumbai, India with his mother and the rest of the herd owned by Mr. Rahol. Discontent with his elephant life, Didier wonders if he’d prefer to be another animal, instead. His mother tells fantastic tales of the wild, before humans captured her and turned her into a domestic animal, but neither she nor the rest of Mr. Rahol’s herd understand Didier's obsession with fighting his destiny.

With his friend the field mouse, Didier embarks on a quest to ask all of the other animals which animal he should be instead. Despite all his effort, not until the time for the festival for the elephant god rolls around in Mumbai once more that Didier understands his inmost heart.
