This is the incredible true story of a little girl’s kidnap, her five year survival alone in the jungle…and the monkeys who saved her. Marina Chapman claims to have been raised by a troop of monkeys as a child after having been abandoned in the Colombian jungle.
Now, fifty years later, Marina is returning to Colombia with her daughter to try and uncover the truth about who she really is. Scientists will analyse her bones, test her subconscious responses, examine the inner workings of her mind and a leading primatologist will try and pick holes in her knowledge of monkeys and their behaviour. Who were her real family? Why was she kidnapped? Could a five year old girl really survive in the jungle so long in the company of monkeys? Is Marina Chapman a fantasist? Or was she truly raised by monkeys? THE WOMAN RAISED BY MONKEYS documents the unique journey from feral child to modern day Grandma.
