Snowflake is the only white gorilla in the world. He is very special and therefore the main attraction in the Barcelona zoo, but the other gorillas don't see what's so charming about this weirdo being the center of attention. Snowflake doesn’t like to be different and he doesn’t understand why the other gorillas won’t accept him. With the help of Ailur, a Buddhist panther, and Paula, a smart little girl, Snowflake plans a sneak visit to the witch of the north at the circus. He hopes the witch can help him become a normal gorilla. But outside the safety of the zoo's walls, Snowflake and his friends are in danger. Superstitious Thomas is convinced that the white gorilla is the amulet he needs to counter his bad luck. This cruel man is prepared to do whatever it takes to capture Snowflake.
