SYNOPSIS

Based on the New York Times best seller, The Zookeeper’s Wife is the moving, true story of a husband and wife’s compassion and incredible will to save hundreds of Jews during WWII .

After the brutal Nazi invasion of Poland levels Warsaw and ravages the city zoo, zookeeper Jan Zabinski and his wife Antonina are left to salvage what’s left of the grounds and the few surviving animals.

As the Nazis begin to tear apart the Warsaw ghetto and deport its Jews to certain annihilation, Jan and Antonina risk everything and smuggle as many victims as possible into their zoo. In the face of utter hopelessness, Antonina finds the strength to keep spirits high through music, conversation and even laughter when they dare to let their guard down. Ever on the edge of being discovered and against all odds, Antonina and the sheltered Jews manage to restore each other’s faith in humanity and together plot a harrowing escape to freedom.
