His father was an explorer that never spent enough time at home either. After he passes away, Popper inherits a special gift from his Dad, a penguin. Before long 6 more penguins arrive and take over Mr. Popper's life. But when his kids fall in love with the birds he has no choice but to keep them. Cue chaos and destruction as the penguins start to turn Mr. Popper's world upside down but in the process, bring him closer to his family.
