The film tells the real-life story of a working wife and mother who becomes a hero to hundreds during World War II. Antonina Abiska (portrayed by two-time Academy Award nominee Jessica Chastain) and her husband, Dr. Jan Abiska, oversee and run the flourishing Warsaw Zoo. After the zoo is bombed by the Nazis, the Abiskas manage to fight back on their own terms: by hiding over 300 people in the empty animal cages. Recognized by the State of Israel as Righteous Among Nations, the Abiski's put themselves in danger to perform these acts of courage, sacrifice, and compassion for total strangers.
