The extraordinary true story of a working wife and mother who became an unlikely hero, saving hundreds of Jewish lives during World War II. In 1939 Poland, Antonina Żabińska (portrayed by two-time Academy Award nominee Jessica Chastain) and her husband, Dr. Jan Żabiński are in charge of the Warsaw Zoo. 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 Brühl). To fight back on their own terms, Antonina and Jan covertly begin working with the Resistance – and put into action a plan to save lives out of what has become the Warsaw Ghetto, with Antonina putting herself and her children at great risk.
