As the Bronze Age arrives and the Stone Age is over, a determined caveman and his faithful sidekick must fight for his home and the rights of his people.
Dug (Eddie Redmayne) the caveman lives a simple but relatively harmonious life with his sidekick Hognob and fellow towns people, at a time when woolly mammoths and other prehistoric creatures roamed the earth. Spending much of their time hunting and chopping fire wood it’s an existence they are accustomed to and not something they’d like to change.
But, when the Bronze Age is ushered in and the Stone Age is suddenly over, Dug and friends must face up to the fact that their lives may never be the same again. To make matters worse, the mighty Lord Nooth (Tom Hiddleston) from the Bronze Age City wants to destroy Dug’s village and plans are quickly made to have it turned into rubble.
Never one to quit, Dug sets off with Hognob in tow to take down Nooth and his Bronze Army.
