Story

Climate change.

Zakayo is adapting himself to a new “chocolateculture”! The forest where he used to live has been destroyed by human beings.

 

Consequently, he is moved and caged in a Zoo where he is given a “forest- diet” he grew up with. A journalist sympathizes with him and determines to free him from the cage.

 

He raises funds to re-plant the forest .Unfortunately, Zakayo dies before the promised forest is actualized!

 

The descendants of Zakayo, who reach the promised forest, consider him a hero, a victim of human activities that caused his death. ! The primates now enjoy a new forest, humanity promises never to tamper with the forest: Hence, the freedom and health of Zakayo’s descendants.
