In 1907, a nurse arrives in the Belgian Congo to work for a missionary doctor but meets a grumpy animal hunter who secretly plans to search for gold in the dangerous Bakuba tribal region.
The movie takes place in the Congo Free State in 1907. King Leopold II, the exclusive owner of the Congo Free State from 1885 to 1908, once said, "It is a question of creating a new State, as big as possible, and of running it. It is clearly understood that in this project there is no question of granting the slightest political power to the negros (sic). That would be absurd."
John 'Lonni' Douglas:
We leave at dawn.
In the opening scene the human face behind the gorilla costume is clearly visible.
