Rebel Monkeys: The Apartment Job

Rebel Monkeys: The Apartment Job
Meet the Galta gang, a 60-strong troop of rhesus macaques, as they make their way from their home in the Galta Temple over rooftops and across a tangle of electric cables through the streets of Jaipur, in northwestern India. Disaster strikes after they raid a home through an open window. The troop makes a hasty getaway when the owner notices, and Kavi, a juvenile monkey, rushes right into live electric wires, leaving him fighting for his life.
