The real-life story of one working wife and mother who became a hero to hundreds of Jews during World War II. In 1939 Poland, Antonina Żabińska (portrayed by two-time Academy Award nominee Jessica Chastain) and her husband, Dr. Jan Antonina Żabiński (Johan Heldenbergh, a European Film Award nominee for the Academy Award-nominated The Broken Circle Breakdown), have the Warsaw Zoo, which is 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 (Golden Globe Award nominee Daniel Brühl of Captain America: Civil War), and his insane obsession to recreate extinct animals. To fight back on their own terms, the Żabińskis covertly begin working with the Resistance and put into action plans to save Jewish lives from of what has become the Warsaw Ghetto. This puts Antonina and even her children at great risk. But as WWII progresses, the shocking scenes are all too much to bear, and the compelling urge to help the poor souls becomes more important than what the Nazis might do as a result.
