Loose silver-screen adaptation of the children's book of the same name follows a businessman's day-to-day life as it is transformed by the unexpected arrival of six penguins.

Tom Popper, a divorced real estate guru and son of an adventure-seeking globetrotting man, returns home from work one day to news that his father has unexpectedly passed away. After being informed by his lawyer that his father's will stipulated that he receive a gift from his last expedition, Tom is presented with a penguin from Antarctica, a present that kicks off a series of events seemingly designed to test him and his relationship with his estranged children when he is inadvertently given five extra penguins to deal with.
