In A Hero's Journey to the Wesyìt an adaptation of the classic novel "Journey to the West", we learn about the rise
of a brave and fun monkey, who is hatched mysteriously from a stone egg atop Flower-Fruit Mountain.
Alone and scared, he struggles for survival among the animals of the forest. Trying to fit in, he imitates every animal
he meets, but they are all afraid of him and run away. Finally, things improve when he saves the life of a young monkey
and is welcomed into their community as one of their own.
At last, he feels like he belongs and makes it his job to protect the group from danger. But when an older monkey dies
from old age his failure to prevent that from happening is more than he can bear.
He leaves his group, hoping the world will teach him what he needs to know to be a better protector of those he loves.
