- The critically endangered orangutans, meaning "forest man" in Malay, is found in the deep forests of Borneo in Malaysia. The film crew joins a group of researchers who have been studying the local orangutans for over 15 years. As the trees throughout the forest start to bloom simultaneously -- a phenomenon seen only once every few years -- the usually solitary orangutans gather and become increasingly active, setting an invaluable opportunity for observation. Witness the rarely documented group behavior of orangutans, children gaining independence from parents, and young males and females engaging in the game of love!
