Monkeys and more. Our closest relatives

We all know how different we are for the rest of the primates ¿Or perhaps we don’t? "Monkeys and more. Our closest relatives" is a familiar and funny wildlife documentary. A journey around the world to find the shared traits between monkeys, apes and us. Just like humans, our wild cousins work hard and enjoy lazing around. They take care of their own and allow themselves to be cared for. They fight each and love each other, too. They teach, learn and share their knowledge. They suffer and know how to enjoy life. The maddest trip is about to begin ¿will you join us?
