Film description

Director Edwin takes us around the world of Postcards from the Zoo unhurriedly, like a good host determined to prevent his guests from missing out on the tiniest morsel of the stunning surroundings. He leads us through the expansive and colorful garden, which is far enough from reality to let us suspend logic. Lana lives in this oneiric setting since birth, but still gazes upon it with glittering eyes of curiosity and fascination. Her eyes shine even brighter when she meets a mysterious magician and becomes his assistant. It seems their separate ways will entwine in amorous emotions until the arrival of unexpected guests from the gangster underworld.
