Who is the heroine of your life? ~ The Zookeeper's Wife Trailer and Giveaway

Who is the heroine of your life?

Everyday life goes on around us and we don't always notice the little things that those around us are doing. Often these little things are the things that make our life easier, these are the things that can change our world. Often the heroine of our life does so quietly, sending out tiny ripples that have a far greater effect upon us than we would ever realize looking forward. But when we look behind us we see a fuller picture.

A gentle nudge here or there to encourage us to overcome a seemingly insurmountable obstacle - an obstacle that is but a small rise to any even greater hill and then into the mountains. It can be a hand to help us regain our footing when we've slipped. A steadying influence as we peddle for the first time. The helpful hints to remember how to spell a word or master a mathematical challenge or preventing a scientific disaster when a report is due the next day.

My heroine has done all this and more. She's been there when I've needed someone to talk to or a rare shoulder to cry on. She's championed those in need by giving what she can and could and has encouraged me to do the same. A heroine doesn't need to go out looking for dragons to slay - she sees the needs around her and just does what is necessary to accomplish her goal. She makes her small corner of the world better by doing what she can and the ripples that she sends out have an untold effect on those who are touched by them.

My heroine is a quiet champion who does what she can whenever she can. Who is the heroine of your life?


In 1939 Poland, Antonina Żabińska (portrayed by two-time Academy Award nominee Jessica Chastain) and her husband, Dr. Jan Żabiński (Johan Heldenbergh, a European Film Award nominee for the Academy Award-nominated The Broken Circle Breakdown), have the Warsaw Zoo flourishing under his stewardship and her care.

When their country is invaded by the Germans, Jan and Antonina are stunned and forced to report to the Reich's newly appointed chief zoologist, Lutz Heck (Golden Globe Award nominee Daniel Brühl of Captain America: Civil War).

To fight back on their own terms, the Żabińskis covertly begin working with the Resistance and put into action plans to save lives out of what has become the Warsaw Ghetto, with Antonina putting herself and even her children at great risk.
