Aberne og det Hemmelige Våben (1995)

The Secret Weapon

The two monkey families, Weismüller and Attila fear each other. That they actually are out of the same family does no one know, because their separation is caused by a terrible war, which only the oldest are able to remember. It was the secret weapon, which caused the accident – a weapon, which destryos everything and which therefore has to be hidden away … but by whom? No one knows. A Romeo & Juliet-story develops when two young monkeys meet. They fall in love, but they are not allowed to, because they each belong to their own family.
