Petting Zoo Blues

The Capp family are the proud owners of ‘Noah’s Park’, the city’s oldest petting zoo. Their bitter rivals, the Monty’s came later to the petting zoo game, and ‘Zora’s Extreme Petting Zoo’ became all the rage. Recently the youngest of each family have just met and secretly fallen in love, and now must find a way to escape a pandemic lockdown and their feuding families to be together.

Lies, deceit, resentment, revenge, murder, and mayhem.  If they seem to be familiar themes, that’s because history keeps repeating itself.
