Conservationist Dr. M. Sanjayan provides a tour of the monkey’s domain in the heavily forested area where the Macaque monkeys now reside.
The troupe has a complex social organization and the ancient ruins provide a perfect sanctuary for their group. The film focuses on Maya, a blonde-bobbed monkey and her newborn child.
Their longtime home, known as Castle Rock is taken over by powerful troupe of neighboring monkeys, forcing Maya’s family to look for a new habitat to raise her young son Kim.
