When a meteorite from outer space hits a California girl named Susan Murphy and makes her grow to 49-feet-11-inches tall, she is taken to a secret government compound in the Nevada Desert where she is locked away with a ragtag group of monsters which have also been rounded up over the years.
Their jail time is cut short by General W.R. Monger, who, on a desperate order from The President, springs the motley crew and calls them into action to combat an unstoppable alien force and save the world from imminent destruction!
