Rebel Monkeys: Divided We Stand

Rebel Monkeys: Divided We Stand
For the past few months, Jaipur's Galta Gang have been happy in their temple home. But as the world's economy plummets, one troop of rhesus macaques must change their luxury lifestyle. The Galta Gang faces a big problem: not only is there less food on offer at the temple, but as the troop expands to nearly 100, there are more mouths to feed. The little food offered by pilgrims is quickly seized by Rani, Kamal and their 40 or so comrades--a sign that a divide in the Galta Gang has already started. The splinter troop, headed by Devdan and Jaya, must cope with life outside the temple walls. It's a time where friendships are challenged and lives placed on the line.
