In 1941 Belfast, capital of Northern Ireland , was a target for German aerial bombing.
As a precaution to prevent potentially dangerous animals getting loose on the city's population the Brits government murdered over thirty of the city zoo's population.
Zoo depicts the efforts of a polyglot group of adults and children to prevent a baby elephant being executed.
Good, dark look to the story stresses the heinous deeds inflicted on the zoo's animals and the dangers to the the city's wartime population.
