Monkey Island

An ancient citadel once home to Sri Lanka’s kings has now been reclaimed by the jungle… and there’s a new dynasty in power. Monkeys. The lives of the King Troop of toque macaques play out among the ruins. Their home is an idyll – a forest full of fruit, and a playground of temple walls. But monkey society is full of drama and the troop sees highs and lows, success and failure, tragedy and death. The macaques share this primate paradise with laid back langurs, and secretive leaf monkeys, but as the island suffers the toughest drought in years, all are tested to their limits.
