Dove "Family-Approved"
For All Ages


The world is a playground for little Oscar and his fellow young chimpanzees, who’d rather make mayhem than join their parents for an afternoon nap. But when Oscar’s family is confronted by a rival band of chimpanzees, he is left to fend for himself until a surprising ally steps in and changes his life forever.

Dove Review

What a wonderfully made documentary. It features beautiful and spectacular scenery as well as the drama, sadness and joy experienced by a small group of Chimpanzees. When a young male becomes an orphan, the wise and powerful leader befriends him and adopts him. Your family will thoroughly enjoy this moving and fun film this is also void of political messages found in most documentaries these days. We are very very pleased to award this film our Family Approved Seal for all ages.
