Product Description:

Chaos ensues when Jack, a sardonic, greedy businessman, inherits a special prize from his estranged father - a giant pachyderm, Vera. To profit from the score, Jack must transport Vera cross-country to the highest bidder.

Plot Synopsis:

When Jack Corcoran's dad -- a circus clown -- dies, he leaves his son two things: a huge pile of debts, and a very large elephant named Vera. In order to pay the debts (and for other obvious reasons) Jack decides to sell Vera. The only problem is, the pair must travel cross-country to reach the people willing to purchase the pachyderm! The result is an unusual, event-filled, hassle-laden adventure, that Jack will NEVER forget.
