At one time, Ted Wallace, nicknamed Hippo, was a budding poet. Then he worked as a journalist in a local newspaper. Ted was a famous rowdy, a lover of noisy and scandalous parties, as well as all sorts of incredible adventures. Of course, Wallace loves the company of gorgeous women, as well as a good drink.
As described in the film "Hippopotamus" some of the antics of this unbridled man strongly disliked others. It so happened that once the leadership after another scandal asked him to quit. New job Ted can not find, because he has a very negative reputation. At this moment, he meets the beautiful Jen. The girl is very sick and looking for all sorts of medicines for healing. She was informed that rather strange things were happening on the estate of his old friend Logan. According to rumors there can be healed from any ills.
Jen asks Wallace to go there and find out on the spot. For this, he will get a pretty decent fee. Skeptic Ted takes up the matter with the desire of all to bring to light. It turns out that the younger son of Lord Logan, angelic teenager, by the power of his unbridled fantasy performs mystical incomprehensible actions.
