He lives alone with his 10-year-old son, Ziad, who has a special bond with the zoo's two giraffes: he seems to be the only one able to communicate with them. After an air raid on the region, the male giraffe dies, and its mate, Rita, won't survive unless the veterinarian can find her a new companion.
