When ecologically aggressive Neanderthal arrives in the rain forest of Anakoka (Ape land), king Mundjita (orangutan) ruler of four species of great apes is pushed towards the tipping point.
Synopsis/Details: 

During the middle of the Paleolithic period, in a thick rain-forest of Katima Mulilo, Namibia, is the remote village of Anakoka. The mighty Zambezi River flows near and far, yet the village had a rough terra rossa terrain and only a few ephemeral plants. Anakoka is a community of primates comprising four species of great apes: orangutan, gorilla, bonobo, and chimpanzee. King Mundjita, an old but sagely orangutan, rules these primates with wisdom. Prince Sishekanu, the heir apparent to the throne, is a nuisance to all in his community except for Queen Nandila, his mother.
Isolated in the same village are three species of slave monkeys: proboscis, colobus, and the snub-nosed monkey. The apes treat them as outcasts and don't respect their opinions. The proboscis are somehow treated well as most of them work in the king’s palace. But the slave monkeys are very useful in autumn, which is the harvest season.
The ape community would soon face trouble from new settlers of nomadic Neanderthals, who lives across the Zambezi River in the Kalahari Desert, all the way from Europe. Once these hunters and gatherers realized some animals could be tamed and the soil could be tilled, they moved from land to land in search of wildlife and fruits. Because of their ignorance and greed, they destroyed nature’s greatest resources and reduced the land to almost nothing, leaving only the Welwitschia mirabilis, a few nara plants, and lots of huge sand dunes. The loss of biodiversity increased. When they settled down in one place, they adopts new occupations such as agriculture, pottery, and animal husbandry. Yet these novice farmers are destructive, greedy, and ecologically aggressive. Because they lack the know-how, genetic diversity is lost. Some animal and plant species eventually became extinct, and the invaders degraded and polluted the ecosystem.
King Mundjita is pushed towards the tipping point, forcing him to take up arms against the timid intruders to defend his land.
This is their story, their war. Who will prevail? Who is the better primate? The better ape? The better hominid? Ancient man, or wild animal?
This is war for settlement. War for subsistence.
