Dean Samuels, a brilliant geophysicist, has created a computer-driven device that utilizes magnetic acceleration and gravity yield (Maggie) to achieve the miracle of time travel. With the assistance of his lifelong friend, Guy Lazarus, Samuels is transported back to the Cretaceous period, when dinosaurs ruled the earth. Once transmission is complete, Lazarus must dismantle the equipment and move everything to a safe location before insurgents can steal the priceless technology.
