Synopsis

Orangutans, native to Malaysia and Indonesia, are the "Man of the Woods". But since the 1980, Taiwanese merchants have smuggled the furry great apes to Taiwan to sell them as domesticated pets. This documentary shows the efforts of research institutes who have been working to rescue these creatures by training them to eventually release them back into the wild. Can the apes once again swing in the paradise they seem to have lost?
