Pepperoni Pizza Pinching Chimps
Pepperoni Pizza Pinching Chimps

In 1964, NASA trained four young chimpanzees to survive in a hostile environment and sent them to the planet Mars. Their mission was to create an ecosystem for themselves underground and to create a colony of future chimps.

The mission failed!

The spacecraft disappeared off the radar as soon as it entered the exosphere, 6750 miles above the Earth. NASA had no idea what happened to the ship or its four occupants. It was a devastating time for NASA.

Fifty-five years later, NASA was still unable to explain what had happened to the chimps.
Meanwhile in Adelaide, South Australia, pizza delivery boys and their pizzas are going missing. Is there a link? Adelaide is about to reveal its secret.

NASA sends four trained monkeys to space to create a community of chimpanzees. The spacecraft crashes. It plunges into the water, and nobody knows what has happened to the chimps...until one day when a pizza boy is kidnapped. Four days later, another pizza boy is kidnapped. After that, every four days, another is kidnapped. Keah's (one of the pizza boys' friend) parents are away on trip when Keah realizes that someone keeps using their address to order pizzas. Could it be her friend trying to send a hint to where he is and tell her that he's in danger?
