African tropical forest. A dark figure escapes through the thicket. The hunters’ shouting grows. The chimpanzee’s eyes shine on her dark face. She is breathing heavily, flees through the jungle. The frightened animal reaches a beautiful colonial villa and enters inside. Leaving her natural environment will stand before an important choice. "The visit" is a film that asks the question of where humanity begins.
