This American war drama is based on the 2007 non-fiction book of the same name written by Diane Ackerman, and recounts the rescue of Jews from Nazi persecution in World War II. It was filmed in Poland, and scenes in the movie make heavy use of the actual diaries of Antonia Zabinska, the actual Zookeeper of the film's title. Antonia's husband was the Director of the Warsaw Zoo.
