Oswald and Oliver Deuce (Brian and Eric Deacon, respectively), twin brothers, both lose their wives in a freak auto accident when a car driven by Alba Bewick (Ferréol) swerves to avoid a rare white swan that attacks it but kills it anyway. Brian, a successful animal behaviorist, and Oliver, a microbiologist employed by a zoo (the punning title of the film is how a Brit might spell the word), become obsessed with mortality, making time lapse films of the decaying carcass of the swan, then an apple, a crocodile, a zebra, and other creatures. Both become sexually involved with Alba, who loses one leg from the accident (and may also be viewed as the "zed" to the twins' "noughts," since their initial is O), then has the other removed by a surgeon who thinks her one leg looked "so sad all alone."
