A mysterious creature arrives from nowhere, devouring farm equipment. The farmers are mystified - and terrified. And then they glimpse him in the night: The Iron Man, taller than a house, with glowing headlight eyes and an insatiable taste for metal. The hungry giant must be stopped at any cost. Only a young boy named Hogarth is brave enough to lead the Iron Man to safety. And only Hogarth knows where to turn to when a space-creature as big as Australia and hungry for every living thing on Earth, darkens the sky.
