In the not-too-distant future, our ever advancing technology has resulted in a nuts-and -bolts revolution. The machines are now in power. Our former slaves are now our masters. The only threat to their world comes in the form of rebel leader John Conner, unseen freedom fighter and keeper of the human spirit who stirs the people into fighting back. At the brink of defeat the machines are forced to play their ace in the hole.. And a wicked ace it is. Using time displacement equipment, they send an indestructible cyborg into the past to murder Connor's mother, Sarah, begore he can be conceived! Connor sends a warrior of his own after the Terminator in the hope of saving Sarah and assuring a future for mankind.
