Overview

A young chimpanzee named Joao witnesses the nightmarish slaughter of his troop and is forced into a new life not of his choosing. He is a product of the bushmeat trade in Africa, and his abductors sell him to a man who owns a circus. Joao’s young life is shattered, but somehow his spirit is strong, and for almost 70 years he survives torture, loneliness, and addictions. Hope is realized when some good people rescue Joao from a small cage that he called home for almost 50 years. Now Joao and some other victims of poachers are finding a new life at Chimp Eden in South Africa and giving a “voice” to all who will listen.
