Metalstorm: The Destruction of Jared-Syn is a science fiction thriller produced and directed by Charles Band. The film's plot focuses on space ranger Dogen (Jeffrey Byron) and his quest to defeat the evil intergalactic warlord Jared-Syn (Michael Preston). The first person he encounters on his journey is a young girl named Dhyana (Kelly Preston), whose father was slain by Jared-Syn's evil half-cyborg son, Baal (R. David Smith). The two discover that Jared-Syn's lair is located in a little-known region called the Lost City, and that the only person who can help them find it is a washed-up soldier named Rhodes (Tim Thomerson). However, Dhyana is abducted and taken to the Lost City before they are able to find Rhodes. Dogen continues on his path and locates Rhodes. Rhodes requires some persuasion, but eventually agrees to help Dogen and they set off for the Lost City to save Dhyana and kill Jared-Syn.
