Quickly she places together her mission: steal the baby orangutan, then return him to the rainforest. Unable to rescue him on her own, she asks Bima and Zaqi, two Sumatran friends, to join the rescue gang. But can they outfox Maniac Man? How will they find the orangutan's mother and return him to the rainforest? Facing insurmountable obstacles, the gang struggles for solutions. When their friendship is strained at the seams, will they find the understanding needed to work together and the courage to stand up of what they believe in? Will Little O, the baby orangutan, return to the rainforest?. All profits will go to orangutan conservation.
