Billions of years ago on primordial earth, born out of turbulent lava, Kong gets caught in the power struggle between two alien civilizations: One - a highly advanced synthetic-intelligent life form with a ruthless robotic army - seeks to drive the other - a group of determined refugees led by their Chief - to extinction. At stake is the possession of a sacred, limitless source of power and energy: the Hundun. As Kong develops feelings for the Chief's daughter, Kong's choice risks sacrificing himself and having to return to his birthplace, the earth's core, to become a living mountain.
KONG is based on the Asian tale of 'Sun Wukong' commonly called the Monkey King. Adapted from the classical Chinese novel, Journey To The West.
