Benjamin Mee has been grieving the loss of his wife, Katherine, for six months. When his 14-year-old son, Dylan, is expelled, he decides to make a fresh start by buying a house. Benjamin tours many homes with his 7-year-old daughter, Rosie, and his realtor, Mr. Stevens, but they find none to their liking. Rosie finds a listing for a large, old house, and upon seeing the house, they decide it is perfect for them. When they hear a lion roar, Stevens explains that if they want the house, then they must also buy the zoo on the property which closed several years before.

Benjamin sees Rosie happily playing with the peacocks and decides to buy it. Dylan, however, hates the idea of moving away from his friends, and retreats into his art (which has grown more macabre since his mother’s death). Duncan, Benjamin’s brother, tries to dissuade him from the purchase, but he buys it anyway. The zoo staff, led by the 28-year-old head keeper, Kelly Foster, start making renovations to reopen the zoo to the public. When Kelly asks Benjamin why he bought the zoo despite knowing nothing about zoo management, he simply responds, “Why not?” Dylan befriends Kelly’s 13-year-old homeschooled cousin, Lily Miska, who develops a romantic interest that Dylan is oblivious to.
