Based on the true story of Antonina and Jan Żabiński, the keepers of Warsaw Zoo who used it as a hiding place for threatened Jews after it was partially destroyed by invading Nazi troops. Given permission to remain living at the zoo despite most of their animals having perished during a bombing raid, the Żabińskis hatch a plan to help their Jewish neighbours avoid persecution by offering shelter amongst the ruins of the zoo. However, a close working relationship with Nazi officer Lutz Heck, who plans to use the zoo’s remaining facilities to further his own projects, puts their covert mission under threat.
The lengths people go to in order to survive are explored in this harrowing and claustrophobic Holocaust drama.
