Callan plays a young zoologist who goes to the California Lion Country Safari preserve to study Frasier, an incredibly potent and amorous lion who has fathered 37 cubs with seven different lionesses. To the zoologist's surprise, the lion talks (or, at least, Jory does) and confides his
secrets to his newfound friend. Billionaire De Kova wants to slaughter Frasier for his glands, hoping to attain the lion's powers (a step up from the old monkey-gland scenario). Soon there are run-ins with criminals, chases galore, and plenty of words of wisdom from Frasier.
