Professor Lovecraft (Cameron Daddo) is a paleontologist whose career is in a slump. He hopes to revive it with a mission into the Turkish forest, where a recent earthquake has opened a rift in the dormant volcano, Mt. Ararat. His crew includes the bitchy daughter of his funder (Mircea Monroe) and sweet, intelligent Kate Heinlein (Amy Sloan). Meanwhile, Captain Bergen (Coolio) leads his special ops unit on a dangerous mission to track down a terrorist. When a cache of perfectly preserved pterodactyl eggs hatches, the two groups must join forces in order to avoid ending up like the dinosaurs--extinct!
