Pin the tail on Natasha

Natasha is a single middle-aged woman who works at a zoo and lives alone with her deeply religious mother. Taunted by her colleagues for being introverted and uptight, she leads a lonely life without close friends or romantic relationships. But when she discovers a tail growing out of her backside, her life takes a drastic turn away from the monotonous routine that has characterized her existence up until now. By thrusting a single fairytale element into a realistic world, ZOOLOGY tells a warm and relatable story of loneliness, alienation and finding your true self late in life.
