Sophie has been sent to the Congo, to the bonobo sanctuary her mother calls home.  Although the animals are her mother’s passion, not her own, Sophie finds herself drawn to the care of the animals.  When war breaks out and the sanctuary is attacked, Sophie must escape into the jungle with the rescued bonobos.  With strength and resilience, human and animal discover what it takes to sacrifice, survive, and love.
