    • When a clan of capuchin monkeys learns that Humans are deforesting near their homeland, they set out to move deeper into the forest. But when they cross path with poachers, most of the clan is killed. Seemingly, only Kea, her twin brother Leo, and their eccentric friend Kepa, manage to escape. Meanwhile, the poachers abduct the twins’ younger sibling Dalia and try to sell her as a pet in the Human City. Fortunately, A Human saves her and brings her to a conservation island, where the monkeys that have been brought there, believe that they are in a theater troupe, performing for the Human visitors. After Kea and Leo find out that Dalia and others may still be alive, they must put aside their differences and embark on a journey to reunite the clan. Though, as Humans and their companies invade the Amazon, the trio grows to understand that the once thriving jungle, might no longer be a safe haven for them.
