This is a teaser for a proposed film on Leo Oosterweghel, the now retired director of Dublin Zoo. As a young man he traveled extensively throughout the world to see animals in the wild, and these experiences inspired his vision for habitat design in a zoo setting and how to implement best practice in animal care. Along the way he witnessed the assassination of a president, the aftermath of the toppling of a dictator, and got caught up in a gun battle. The old adage that life is stranger than fiction certainly applies.
