Summary

The host's narration at the U Buddyho restaurant pulls the viewers into a suspenseful story of one woman, three men and a dog, who all wanted and want freedom. They no longer seek a country for themselves and their ideas, but discover in their chests the pre-civilisation pure heart of primates. They let themselves be led by their pulse, the beating of tom-toms, by the forgotten ape-like sentiment; they set on a journey of intrigues and possible salvation. The film is based on the play Harila performed by The Nicest Little Bears company.
