A young girl and her unusual pet stir up lots of excitement in this lively adventure starring Academy Award® winner Louis Gossett, Jr. (1982 Best Supporting Actor for An Officer and a Gentleman).
When Jackie Leeds' father tells her they will be leaving Africa, she must say good-bye to her lifelong friend Tembo (Gossett). But Jackie finds it impossible to part with her adorable pet bushbaby, the monkey-like creature she calls Komba. After smuggling him aboard the ship set for London, she has second thoughts and goes ashore to find a refuge for her furry friend. The ship sails without her, and Jackie persuades Tembo to lead her to the home of a friend. Mistakenly, word gets out that Tembo has kidnapped Jackie, and there is a price on his head. Komba and the two unlikely friends dodge the police in one perilous episode after another. When Tembo is caught and wounded, only Jackie's father can save him, if he can reach the trio in time.
Full of suspense and action, The Bushbaby is a quick-moving drama that will entertain the whole family.
