A group of cavemen (and women) are driven away from their home by another tribe of a different species. To add to the disaster, their precious source of fire is extinguished when the carrier stumbles and drops it in some water. They don't know how to start a fire, so the tribe select Naoh (McGill), Amoukar (Perlman) and Gaw (El-Kadi) to go on a life-and-death search. Unless they are successful, their people will perish from the cold.

On their travels, they steal some fire from yet another tribe. One of the tribe's captives (and future meal), a young woman named Ika (Chong), escapes in the confusion and attaches herself to Naoh. Eventually Naoh mates with her. They end up prisoners of her more advanced people, where Naoh learns many new things, including how to make fire and use weapons. They escape back to their own tribe, accompanied by Ika. Armed with their new weapons, they kill or drive off their enemies.
Best part of story, including ending:
There's a fair bit of humor. The plot's also interesting.
Best scene in story:
Their first primitive attempt at humor, consisting of Amoukar dropping a rock on the sleeping Gaw's head. Even Gaw finds it amusing (after a while).
Opinion about the main character:
All of the four characters do a good job communicating to the audience
without understandable dialogue.
