An inspirational drama based on a true story in which a young Palestinian boy and his veterinarian father makes an incredible journey to transport a giraffe from Israel to the zoo in the West Bank.

Yacine is the veterinarian of the only zoo remaining in the Palestinian West Bank. He lives alone with his 10-year old son, Ziad, who has a special bond with the two giraffes in the zoo and seems to be the only one to communicate with them. After an air raid in the region the male giraffe dies. His mate, Rita, won’t survive unless the veterinarian finds her a new companion. The only zoo that might provide this animal is located in Tel Aviv and so father and son set off on an incredible journey to save their beloved giraffe.
