Trapped by the city, thousands of animals survive in Brasilia zoo. At night, tamanduas, wolves with manes, owls and crab-eating foxes mix with biologists, veterinarians and healers in a dark scenario where the challenges of life preservation spin a web of crisscrossing destinies. Who is actually fenced in?
