In the year 2029, astronaut Leo Davidson (Wahlberg) is forced to make an emergency landing on an Earth-like planet. He soon learns that this strange place is inhabited by primitive humans and English-speaking apes. Following his capture and subsequent escape, Leo assembles a small band of defiant humans and empathetic apes in an attempt to re-establish contact with his space station. Freedom or complete annihilation is in the hands of the rebellion against the gorilla army. Based on a novel by Pierre Boulle.
