Film details

Cast & Credits

Synopsis

Science fiction. In the year 3000 or thereabouts, young Jonnie Goodboy Tyler lives in a world populated by very few humans since Earth was plundered when the Psychlos destroyed most of civilisation. He joins forces with Rock and Carlo, nomadic hunters, following the death of his father, to explore some mysterious ruins. During the course of one such trip he is abducted by Terl, an officer in charge of the Psychlos' mining operations. Terl has already captured other humans, or `man-animals', for labour purposes. Jonnie is soon organising armed resistance to his captors, much to the displeasure of Terl.
