Jonna has lived at an orphanage all her life. One day a gorilla turns up and adopts her. It takes a while for Jonna to get used to her new mother and right when things start to feel good, a bigwig from the Council comes along who wants to demolish the scrapheap they live on. There are many who don’t like the ape and her daughter, who are both different and don’t behave like everyone else. But the ape has a heart of gold and it’s hard to imagine a more loving adoptive mother.
