From inside his wire cage in the Botanical Gardens an old, solitary, one-eyed wolf from Alaska lets himself be tamed, little by little, by a small African boy.
In turn they tell each other of the dramatic, moving and sometimes comical events which have led them to this old Parisian zoo.
This exchange reconciliates the wolf with Mankind, while the boy encounters all of the African animals that he thought he had lost forever.
