Yakini is a gorilla born in a Zoo. Although leading an existence of a celebrity, his life in captivity is a juxtaposition of happiness and illusion. The simplicity of his natural instincts is counterbalanced by the demands and definitions of the human world. As Yakini goes about his daily life in his own mischievous fashion does he really understand his predicament?
