Enter RJ, an opportunistic raccoon who explains that the world beyond the hedge is "the gateway to the good life" where peculiar creatures called humans live to eat, rather than eat to live. Eventually, RJ and Verne form an unlikely friendship as they and their furry friends learn to coexist with - and even exploit - this strange new world called suburbia.
