A subtle drama on human frailty, The Ape, Jesper Ganslandt's second feature, is a tough and restrained exploration of a descent into hell and what happens to a mans humanity when all he knows is stripped away. Krister, a husband and father, wakes up to the consequences of a tragedy. He is a broken man, but not aware of it yet. Confronted with everyday reality, there is no place for escape and Krister is soon forced to face up to his actions. The Ape is about the struggle to hold on to things around us already lost. Realising what is left when the life you once had is gone.
