European animal protection laws, German Armed Forces foreign operations and a seized turtle, whose shell was painted with the flag of the Syrian rebels. All converge at a reptile rescue centre in Munich, headed by Dr. Markus Baur. A German army specialist is learning how to deal with dangerous reptiles – he must keep calm, catch, neutralize it. Meanwhile, Baur informs the turtle’s owner, a young Syrian woman, that she is unlikely to get her animal back following the European species protection law. A multi-perspective film in the midst of glass terrariums exploring the connections between animal, man and war.
