There is nothing the orphan Jonna wants more than a mother. The spirited young girl dearly wants to be adopted. Jonna will accept anyone, really, as long as her new parent loves Jonna… and only Jonna. But when her potential new mom drives up to the orphanage in an old car, she gets a big shock when the door opens and a gorilla steps out! Jonna is not sure she wants to leave with the big, clumsy primate at first, but ape and girl quickly overcome their physical differences. But can their newfound domestic bliss survive the scheming of a powerful local bureaucrat who’s out to separate the two?

Linda Hambäck’s animated adaptation of Frida Nilsson’s award-winning novel THE APE STAR is a film about outsiders and unconventional love.

Linda Hambäck, Sweden, 2020, 74 min. Dutch spoken, without subtitles.
