In a city with a cultural mix of nationalities, age and gender, eight complete strangers all have one thing in common: they feel trapped in their own city and in their own lives. A sprinkle of hope enters when an escaped zebra runs free in the city. The eight strangers are all subconsciously enticed to catch this zebra. In doing so, their lives intertwine and are profoundly changed. This is a story about liberty, compassion and hope in modern times of troublesome existential thought.
