A long time ago to end a battle that lasted for years, the four kings of the jungle gathered together to sow life-seeds in the urns of the Ancestors Tree.The tree flourished and the jungle saw years of prosperity. However, the kings grew old and decided to leave the jungle, taking the life-seeds with them. The Tree of Ancestors slowly declined until it was nothing more but a memory.
But then, one day, monkeys Nikita, James, Bruce and George discover a life-seed by accident. Advised by paradise bird Kimz they decide to bring the Ancestors Tree back to life by searching for the other life-seeds.
