The Screen Guide

MONKEY tells the story of young monk on a perilous journey across China to collect the scrolls of Buddhist wisdom to restore faith and order in the world. Escorted on the journey by a motley group of disciples they will discover that the journey, not the arrival, is the true lesson. Chief among these disciples is Monkey – an irrepressible demi-god, a trickster, impatient, vain. An action adventure series for 8-12 year-olds it’s a quest and a folk tale rolled into one. High stakes told with humour, it’s a story of wisdom and nonsense, of betrayal and loyalty, or excitement and enlightenment, of good against evil.
