Dr. Dolittle, an internationally renowned veterinarian with an ability to communicate with animals, has stayed on his estate for many years, and his wife’s death was the reason for his isolation. The doctor has not communicated with the outside world for seven years, and the animals – which are his only friends – are next to the veterinarian in the most difficult moments of his life.
However, when Victoria, Queen of Great Britain, asks Dolittle to help her cope with a rare disease, our hero with his four-legged friends goes to the distant island of Eden to get a fruit that will cure the monarch from a serious illness.
