Learn the laws necessary for surviving the jungles of adolescence in this primal reimagining of Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book. Adapting the most beloved and fearsome characters of the classic stories, the man cubs of Synetic Teen Company venture deep beneath the canopy to explore the trials, triumphs and rites of passage inherent to growing up in the jungles of the 21st Century. **__
