A Moonraker space shuttle has been stolen and its up to James Bond to investigate. His mission will take him to the water city of Venice in northern Italy and to the Amazon.

Along the way he will meet his metal toothed enemy Jaws once more whilst assisted by space pilot Dr Holly Goodhead. It is the only time that Bond visits outer space, the other film connections have been through satellite weaponry. At the end of the film, Jaws changes sides because of his love for Dolly and because of what plans Hugo Drax might have for Jaws.
