n present-day London, twelve-year-old Quinn watches as his mother, a construction engineer inadvertently wakes an enormous fire-breathing beast from its centuries-long slumber.

Dragons emerge and burn the whole world as a boy witnesses his mother get killed by one, this boy grows up to be the leader of a group of survivors in the future who live in fear of the Dragons; who now populate the Earth.
Funnily enough, despite the fact that it is the year 2020 the arrival of Dragons makes them live in what appear to be medieval times. A bunch of American soldiers in tanks turn-up at the bases door-step and their general negotiates his way into the camp. The two dislike each other quite strongly, in what appears to be the deepest character relationship of the film. A female soldier is also among the new inhabitants and, of course, there is tension between the two.
However, even though this American soldier has brought a dozen tanks along with him, he still finds …
