In Ireland during World War II a group of determined youngsters band together for a cause bigger than themselves. When Tom’s father, a veterinarian for the Belfast Zoo, is called away to war, Tom feels it’s his duty to ensure the well-being of the animals, including its newest addition, a baby elephant. But the impending German air raids and short-sighted decisions of the Zoo staff threaten to endanger the animals, and Tom must act quickly to ensure the survival of the Zoo’s inhabitants. A tale of family, friendship, and empathy inspired by true life.
