What does the future hold for apes that have been adopted by human beings for research and entertainment purposes? Discover their plight in this film covering the lives of three apes: Cheeta, a veteran film star who has retired to a life of art and leisure; Kanzi, a well-trained linguist who demonstrates just how fine the line separating man from apes is; and Knuckles, the tragic subject of NASA experimentation who’s been left crippled and isolated by his experiences. The closer you get to these extraordinary subjects, the harder it is to dismiss their trials as the inevitable cost of human lifestyle and progress.
