Off the coast of Central Africa lies an isolated island, covered by primeval rainforest and surrounded by dark ocean waters, inhabited by a greater variety of species than nearly any other place on Earth: BIOKO. The ruler of this realm is one of the world's least known primate species, the drill.
Bordering this kingdom is the black sand coastline, an ancient nesting ground for giant sea turtles. This film explores the secret lives of drills and their mysterious island home as we follow a family group and a newborn who discovers this tropical paradise for the first time.
