The Zookeepr's Wife tells the account of keepers of the Warsaw Zoo, Antonia and Jan Zabinski, who helped save hundreds of people and animals during the Nazi invasion.

The time is 1939 and the place is Poland, homeland of Antonina Zabinski and her husband, Dr. Jan Zabinski. The Warsaw Zoo flourishes under Jan's stewardship and Antonina's care. When their country is invaded by the Nazis, Jan and Antonina are forced to report to the Reich's newly appointed chief zoologist, Lutz Heck. The Zabinskis covertly begin working with the Resistance and put into action plans to save the lives of hundreds from what has become the Warsaw Ghetto

Running time 127 minutes

Starring Jessica Chastain, Johan Heldenberg, Daniel Bruhl
