Free film adaptation of the novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Scotland, 1886 Old Earl Greystock helps his son John Clayton and his wife Alice leave for Africa. The romantic journey of the young couple turned into a tragedy: they were shipwrecked on the west coast of Africa and are trying to survive while waiting for help by building their own homes. Alice dies after the birth of a son, John almost immediately after his wife became a victim of ferocious monkeys, and the child was miraculously saved by the female monkey. Clayton’s son, John, not only adapts to the environment and lifestyle of the monkeys, grows stronger and grows stronger, but also becomes their master. In his twentieth year of life among monkeys, he rescues the wounded by the pygmy of the Belgian scientist Philip d'Arneau, who was the head of a scientific expedition of the British Museum. Philippe d'Arno discovers the Clayton refuge and documents of the noble savage, his savior. He does everything he can to bring John back to his ancestral castle in Scotland, to his grandfather. But in the refined and arrogant English civilization of the time of Edward VII, with its complex and icy code of conduct, John, Earl of Greystock, does not like much, especially the fact that the monkeys are kept in captivity and conducted experiments on them. Having lost two creatures close to him, his grandfather and his adoptive father - a chimpanzee, the young Greystock with his wife Jane returns back to the jungle of Africa.
