Brief Synopsis

James Parker is in Africa looking for a mythical white ape when his wife dies. He is joined by his estranged daughter, Jane. Together, they learn this white ape is Tarzan, a man who was raised by apes in the jungle. Parker continues to hunt Tarzan, but now with the purpose of bringing him back to England, dead or alive. Tarzan responds to the situation by kidnapping Jane, and the two are fascinated by each other. When natives take Jane with the intent of sacrificing her, Tarzan springs into action.
