Jan (Johan Heldenbergh) and Antonina Zabinski (Jessica Chastain) are running the Warsaw zoo when the Nazis invade Poland in 1939.
Following the bombing of the zoo and the escape of the surviving animals into the ruined city, they join the Resistance, sheltering Jewish refugees in the underground pens and cages. Will their covert operation be discovered by their former ally – German zoologist turned SS officer Lutz Heck (Daniel Brühl)? Based on Diane Ackerman’s best-selling true account, this Holocaust drama is anchored by another impressive performance from Jessica Chastain, even if she does struggle at times with a Polish accent.
