When the asteroid that should have wiped out the dinosaurs instead narrowly misses Earth, life goes on pretty much as usual for the prehistoric beasts. After millions of years, the dinosaurs have developed civilization. Ayoung apatasaurus named Arlo (Ochoa) works on a farm with his family, but is too cowardly and timid to help out with most of the chores. After his father (Wright) is killed in a flash flood and Arlo becomes separated from the rest of his family, he ends up befriending a feral "pest" — a young human cave boy, whom Arlo names Spot (Bright).
