the story followed a chimpanzee named Oscar. together with a group of chimpanzees, they occupied a forest that is rich with fruits and nuts. as a toddler, Oscar was taken care by his mother, Isha, while he began learning about survival in the jungle. one day during a raid by a rival gang of chimpanzees, Isha was injured and separated from the group. Oscar began to lose weight, seeking for a new mother, but none of the females could afford keeping him, having their own to raise. after being rejected by every chimpanzee in the group, there was only one member left, their leader Freddy.
Chimpanzees reminded us so much of ourselves with their behaviors, making it easy to relate while watching Oscar and his gang survived in the jungle. having the alpha male, Freddy took Oscar in came as a surprise to us. it was unheard of, a completely unique idea. the visual was absolutely incredible, having us living among the chimpanzees, experiencing their joy, their fear.
