Ape House is about a lab in Kansas, where they study Bonobos. They learned ASL ( American Sign Language). There are 6 apes, names are Sam, Bonzi, Lola, Mbongo, Jelani, and Makena. The head scientist behind it is Isabel Duncan, she considers the apes more than friends, they are family. She has worked with the apes for over 8 years. The lab is called Great Ape Language Lab. At the lab they had an explosion and it severely injured Isabel, they were tiring to "liberate" the apes.
