Alice, 23, is a zookeeper. She identifies more with animals than with humans, especially with Jean-Paul, a little runaway penguin whom she thinks is capable of flying away. One evening, she finds herself locked up after closing time. She is not alone in the zoo that night. An unlikely and magical encounter may help her find a new lease on freedom.
