Steve is just an ordinary gorilla at the zoo. He’s confident in his routine and knows what to expect. However, this ordinary gorilla gets a taste of the extraordinary when he misses his zookeeper, Antonio, and escapes to the spectacular upheaval of Rio during Carnival in search of him. Steve wanders the streets getting an up close and personal look at the sights, sounds, and colors of Rio and its famous celebration. Even amidst the glitz, glamour, and beauty of the city, Steve nevertheless finds his way back home to the zoo—in the city he loves.
