Abandoned in the zoo by her father when she was a little girl, Lana grew up surrounded by animals, boundaries and the sounds of a subdued wilderness. Raised by animal trainers, she knows the only world - the zoo. One day, a handsome young man enters her world and she falls in love. At his side, she leaves the zoo for the very first time. Postcards from the Zoo is a story about the world that was never built to be a home, which presents an enchanting romance full of myths, magic and memories. A sensual adventure that is at once unsettling and life-affirming, arranged in beautiful and dreamlike images.
