      An American scientist is kidnapped and forced to work on a mysterious island machine complex discovered by a Japanese soldier during World War II. Held captive by the evil Chow Peng, Peter is forced to solve the riddle of the alien machine. The mysterious atoll has remained anonymously hidden in the Banda Sea for centuries only occasionally showing its anger against passing aircraft. The island is doomed and about to become seismic dust while hundreds of armed men block the only path to freedom. Ten-year-old Horace drags his dying companion through the unearthly labyrinth searching for help. Driven by hatred he is the only living person who knows the secret of how to destroy the infestation. Can anyone survive the imminent cataclysmic event?
