The Zookeeper's Wife

When Germany invades Poland, Luftwaffe bombers devastate Warsaw and the city's zoo along with it.

More 'guests' hide inside the Zabinskis's villa, emerging after dark for dinner, socializing and, on rare occasions of calm, piano concerts. They call this refuge from the Nazi occupation 'The House Under a Crazy Star'.

As the war escalates Jan becomes increasingly involved in the anti-Nazi resistance. Ammunition is buried in the elephant enclosure and explosives stored in the animal hospital.
