"Dinosaurs at Dusk - 3D"


It's a learning adventure of a father and his teenage daughter Lucy, who share a fascination for all things that fly. You'll travel back in time to meet the pterosaurs and the ancestors of modern-day birds: the feathered dinosaurs. Lucy and her father navigate from continent to continent, looking for clues about the origins of flight. When time runs out, they experience first-hand the cataclysmic "last day" of the dinosaurs.
