Maya and Timmy are playing hide-and-seek in the woods when they find an old bone. When they rub it, they are transported back to a time when dinosaurs still ruled the earth. They hide in the ferns, but when their cell phone rings, they are discovered. As the dinosaurs approach them, the siblings are saved by the appearance of a Tyrannosaurus Rex, only to have the T-Rex turn around and start chasing them. What will become of these two youngsters in the pre-mastodon?
