In Indonesian Borneo, at the largest primate rescue and rehabilitation project in the world, orangutan orphans, all carrying the weight of traumatic pasts, progress through a unique Jungle School system.

With their rainforest habitat being destroyed by logging at an alarming rate there are over 600 students at Nyaru Menteng – which has four schooling stages divided up to suit the age range from babies just a few weeks old to young adults (equivalent to a nineteen year old).

The series follows the real life, day to day struggles, triumphs and dramas of a number of hero characters in each stage of Jungle School.
