Millions of years ago, a living DNA named Monsuno hitched a ride to Earth in an asteroid pocket. The impact of its crash landing on Earth drove the dinosaurs into extinction and the Monsuno DNA lay dormant until a scientist, Jeredy Suno, activated it. The activation of the DNA sent a rippling wave of movement back into action and may have reignited the end of the world. But Suno may have also created the world's salvation, the Monsuno monsters. Now a group of heroic teens, including Jeredy's son, Chase, must learn the secrets of Monsuno and help save the world from its impending destruction.
