Set in the not-too-distant future, a Gizmonic Institute employee is lured to the dark side of the moon by third-generation mad scientist Kinga Forrester and her flunky, Max. He is sat in front of cheesy movies with his robot buddies and forced to tortuously watch bad movies in their entirety as these mad scientists study the effects on his mind. Kinga drops a bombshell on Jonah before plunging him into a world of bare-chested carnies, talking chimps, brooding magicians and young love.
