‘Monkey’ is an imaginative adaptation of the classic Chinese novel ‘Journey to the West’. It chronicles the epic quest of Tripitaka, accompanied by his three diverse disciples: the mischievous Monkey, the gluttonous Pigsy, and the stoic Sandy. Their journey from China to India in search of sacred Buddhist scriptures unfolds in a fantastical realm brimming with gods, demons, and enchanting magic.
