The King troop, made up of over 40 toque macaques, is one of the largest in Sri Lanka. And now that the adolescents of the group are on the cusp of adulthood, they'll soon be forced to leave.
Troop life is full of fun and adventure for teenage macaques, but it can't stay that way forever. When males come of age, they're forced out of the group. Follow young Ravi as he leaves his idyllic home and sets off on the journey of a lifetime. Watch as he navigates life in the big city, makes new friends, dodges danger, and tackles the most challenging experience of his life: finding a new troop to call home.
