2015 год. When Hank's class takes a field trip to the zoo, he quickly gets lost after his partner (and nemesis) ditches him. Unable to read the map, Hank wanders and finds himself locked in a habitat with Elsie the elephant. Elsie has been recently rescued and kept isolated until she can get along with the other elephants. Unsure of what to do, Hank takes up a game of soccer with her. By the time Hank's friends Frankie and Ashley come looking for him, he and Elsie have formed a bond. They all notice that Elsie is lonely and longs to be with other elephants. They make a plan to get the zookeeper's help. The zookeeper is horrified to find Hank there, but is impressed when he sees how gently Elsie treats Hank. In the end, Elsie is reunited with the other elephants, and Hank delivers a great report on elephants.
