The story of humanity's battle for survival, and the one woman in the center of it all that could change everything.
In 2029, human civilization has been pushed to the brink of extinction by self-aware machines. Skynet, the center of the machines sends a Terminator (a hyper-advance, superhuman cyborg) back in time to kill Sarah Connor, the mother of John Connor, the leader of the human resistance still battling Skynet.
By doing so, John Connor will never have been born and the resistance would never have existed. To combat this, John Conner sends one of his own men - Kyle Reese (his to-be father), to protect Sarah Connor so that humanity can continue fighting.
