Aunt Entity forces Max to fight Blaster in the Thunderdome arena, and, when Max refuses to kill Blaster, he is banished into a sand storm. A band of tribal teens and children rescues Max, and he agrees to help them find their Tomorrow Morrow Land–a feat that will require saving them from the desert and from Aunt Entity.
