Jonna has lived at the Renfanan children’s home her whole life. She’s always dreamed of having a mother. One day a gorilla pops round in a banged-up old car and adopts her. It takes a while for Jonna to get used to things with her new unusual adoptive mother, but just as things are settling down the local town councillor threatens their very home and livelihood. Can Jonna and gorilla find a way to stay together and be happy?
A charming hand-drawn animation based on a very popular Swedish children's book, The Ape Star asks the important question - who is your family?
