Portland, Oregon, turns into a primeval forest, where a vicious motorcycle gang takes advantage of the chaos to hunt both tyrannosaurs and innocent human beings. Plesiosaurs are spotted off the coast of Hawaii, while a stranded family struggles to survive a savage conflict between an enraged brontosaurus and a bloodthirsty pack of killer whales. Winged reptiles, extinct for millennia, swoop from the sky to carry off small children. Looters battle dinosaurs in the Bronx, where one old woman, alone and forgotten, discovers a new reason to live.
