Iv n prefiere ver la televisi n y charlar con sus amigos Stella, una anciana elefanta, y Bob, un perro callejero. Lo que m s le gusta a Iv n es pintar, captar en sus cuadros el sabor de un mango o el sonido de las hojas de los rboles. Pero el d a que llega Ruby, una elefantita beb que fue separada de su familia, todo cambia, e Iv n comienza a ver su hogar y sus cuadros de una forma distinta.
