Joey is at the bottom of the food chain when it comes to dating. In love (from afar) with Bronwin the drop-dead Lion Tamer; his best friend begs Joey to lower his expectations and fish in his own pool.

But when German eco-terrorists break into their zoo, threaten to free the animals and feed the Manager to a crocodile or two, Joey escapes from their clutches and has an opportunity to rescue the hostages, save the day - and declare his love.

Chased by terrorists with a hidden agenda as he runs loose around the enclosures, foiling their plans and accidentally killing a bad guy or two, Joey has met his match when he discovers that things are not quite what they seem and he must take courage if he is to save the zoo - or lunch will be on him!

It's DIE HARD (in a zoo) meets SHE'S OUT OF MY LEAGUE.
