Gorilla Khan follows the story of two young boys, Otis Banks and Anthony Maldada, whose lives are woven in two different places and are taking different paths in their journey. Otis or Obie lives with his loving grandmother in America, but at his young age, he is exploring the street life and doing hideous deals to earn money without her knowing. Anthony or Redwind works to bring about something revolutionary and phenomenally significant with his grandfather in Puerto Rico—a well-programmed arrow that won’t fail to hit a target. He will soon succeed his grandfather as the greatest marksman.
Living with different lives, the two young boys face different challenges but by circumstance, they will meet to kill each other. However, when Obie’s grandmother passed away, she left him all she had and a box that reveals everything he wants to know about his life. They used to be enemies, but now Obie will meet Redwind for a life-changing purpose. How are the lives of these two young boys connected to each other?
