What Is the Story of Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo?
Bengal Tiger follows the interweaving lives of a group of people in Baghdad during the Iraq war. The story begins while two American soldiers guard a caged tiger inside the Baghdad Zoo. When the tiger tries to attack one man, the other shoots the animal. The ghost of the tiger soon begins to haunt the soldier as those around the soldier begin to suspect he is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. The story also focuses on an Iraqi translator working with the Americans who hallucinates conversations with his deceased former employer, Uday Hussein (son of Saddam).
