Future War begins aboard a spaceship undergoing a revolt. A man enters and activates an escape pod which travels to Earth and crashes into the Pacific Ocean. The pod contains “The Runaway”, a human slave played by Daniel Bernhardt. He is being pursued by cyborg slavers and dinosaurs that they use as “trackers. ” Since he was kidnapped some time from Earth’s past, The Runaway is familiar with the English language and the King James Bible, and he regards Earth as a literal heaven.
