Following the mothballing of a secret US Government Experiment, an incompetent Janitor, Walter, accidentally unleashes a platoon of military trained – and very angry - monkeys from an animal containment lab run by the sadistic Dr. Orkenstein. Mayhem ensues and soon Walter and a platoon of elite soldiers sent in to control the situation, are in a race for their lives against an enemy that really is superior in every way.
