The Singing Apes of Kao Yai
This is an intimate look at the life of one family of gibbons and a very special lifestyle that revolves around song. Filmed high in the treetops we follow a family of four - an adult male and female, their one year old baby and their eight year old son, soon to leave home. How good his singing is will reflect on his success in finding a partner and establishing new land of his own. But gibbons also face another threat to their success as young animals - poaching.
