This film examines the problem of the harvesting of primates, including several species of extremely endangered gorillas, for "bushmeat." Considered by some to be a delicacy in west Africa's Cameroon, the practice means that some of the continent's last primates are being eaten to death. Can these amazingly human-like creatures be saved, or is the problem too widespread for them to survive?
