In 1939 Poland, Antonina Å»abiÅ„ska (Jessica Chastain) and her husband, Dr. Jan Å»abiÅ„ski have the Warsaw Zoo flourishing under his stewardship and her care.
When their country is invaded by the Nazis, Jan and Antonina are stunned and forced to report to the Reich's newly appointed chief zoologist, Lutz Heck (Daniel BrÃ¼hl).
To fight back on their own terms, the Å»abiÅ„skis covertly begin working with the Resistance and put into action plans to save lives out of what has become the Warsaw Ghetto, with Antonina putting herself and even her children at great risk.
Based on the book "The Zookeeper's Wife: A War Story," by Diane Ackerman.
