Lucy was an extraordinary chimpanzee raised to believe she was human as part of a psychological experiment started in the 1960’s. When Lucy turned twelve, she began to act out violently. Her adoptive parents were no longer able to fulfill her needs and decided to send her to Africa where it became a tremendous struggle for Lucy to adapt to not only life without her family, but without the comforts of American suburbia. “Lucy” is a short animated film chronicling the many years of struggle Janis Carter experienced in order to help Lucy gain independence and freedom in her natural habitat.
