The Zookeeper's Wife

The real-life story of one working wife and mother who became a hero to hundreds during World War II.

In 1939 Poland, Antonina Zabinski (Jessica Chastain) and her husband, Dr. Jan Zabinski 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 (Daniel Bruhl).

To fight back on their own terms, the Zabinskis covertly begin working with the Resistance, with Antonina putting herself and her family at great risk.
