Summary
Told from the perspectives of both humans and chimpanzees, A Beautiful Truth is about Looee, a chimp raised by a compassionate human couple in Vermont who cannot conceive a baby of their own
Summary
Told simultaneously from the perspective of humans and chimpanzees, set in a Vermont home and a Florida primate research facility, A Beautiful Truth--at times brutal, other times deeply moving--is about the simple truths that transcend species, the meaning of family, the lure of belonging, and the capacity for survival. A powerful and haunting meditation on human nature told from the dual perspectives of a Vermont family that has adopted a chimp as a surrogate son, and a group of chimpanzees in a Florida.
