Planet of the Apes - Escape From Central City
Astronauts Virdon and Burke have lost everything: their ship, their freedom, and, apparently, their sanity. Because their captors aren't humans. They aren't even aliens.
They're walking, talking, gun-slinging apes.
When the men are brought to the apes' capital, they soon learn that they aren't seen as envoys of another civilization, but as the ghosts of a long forgotten age - a memory that the apes want to stay forgotten. Playing for time to delay their inevitable execution, they befriend the young Chimp who has been appointed as their handler - and interrogator.
After their escape attempt goes horribly wrong, their handler receives orders to execute them on the spot, and suddenly, the men's lives depend on a young scientist's conflicted conscience. Will the friendship they've built override her duty to her simian elders?
