Abstract:

Sam Neill (Jurassic Park, Daybreakers) stars as a dedicated zookeeper in this emotionally and politically charged drama that explores the depths of human nature in the time of war. A city zoo in an Eastern European country is abandoned when war ravages the city. Ludovic (Neill), a cynical ex-communist with a troubled past, and the zoo's vet (Om Puri) decide to stay and take care of the animals despite the bombing and lack of supplies. Partisans soon take the vet away, leaving Ludovic alone to take care of the animals - until he discovers a wounded 10-year-old boy hiding in the compound. After being nursed back to health, the boy brings his mother (Gina McKee) to the zoo. Ludovic is now forced to take a political stand: either force the two out of the zoo or protect them and risk the zoo's destruction by occupying forces. Sam Neill delivers a performance brimming with quiet dignity and strong resolve. Based on a real-life incident, this stirring tale will capture your imagination.
