Synopsis by John Schietinger

In this video, three paleontologists try to uncover the mysteries behind fossilized dinosaur remains. Over the course of 94 minutes, the scientists discover remains from a completely new species of dinosaur, which it takes the researchers over two years to put together. The program also features a segment with vivid images of dinosaur eggs and embryos. Additionally, the video covers the controversy surrounding the fossils of Sue, the only complete Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton ever found. Not only are various dinosaurs examined, but the viewer gains extensive insight into the lives of the determined paleontologists, who dig deep into the past to make sense of these enigmatic and fascinating creatures.
