Reinhard Klooss and Holger Tappe direct a colourful animated comedy set in the Okavango Delta, where the animals wait patiently every year for the flood that nourishes the valley and its flora.

When the deluge fails to materialise, Billy the little mischievous meerkat (voiced by James Corden) and Socrates the friendly lion (Stephen Fry) embark on an epic quest to find water and to prove to Billy's son Junior that his old man is just as valiant as the bigger animals on the plain. En route, the friends encounter animals from all over the world, who are seeking a new home in the African landscape. The voice cast also includes Jim Broadbent, Omid Djalili, Jason Donovan, Dawn French, Joanna Lumley, Billie Piper, Vanessa Redgrave and Andy Serkis.
