Back to the Future: The Plot

The film begins in 1985 with Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) on top of the world. He’s a popular high school student and an ace skateboarder. He also has a beautiful girlfriend named Jennifer (Claudia Wells). However, things soon take a turn for the worse when Marty is visited by eccentric scientist Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd). Doc reveals to Marty that he has invented a time machine and that he needs Marty’s help to test it.

Angry Libyans!

Before testing begins, a group of angry Libyans enter and begin an armed assault. It appears that Doc Brown swindled the Plutonium he needed as fuel for the DeLorean from them.

Marty, believing that Doc has been gunned down, flees in the time-traveling vehicle and is sent back in time to 1955. Upon arrival in the ’50s, he inadvertently interferes with his parents’ first meeting and must use all of his ingenuity and courage to set things right before it’s too late. After all, if his parents never meet, he will never have been born! Along the way, he also has to deal with the bumbling local law enforcement, and fend off the advances of his own mother Lorraine!

Lorraine asks Marty to the dance and Marty comes up with a plan. He thinks that if he makes advances on her (his future mother …ewww) she will need to be rescued by George McFly. Instead of this happening, George is assaulted by the bully BIFF. Biff then goes on to assault Lorraine but it’s George to the rescue! He becomes enraged and knocks Biff unconscious. He then escorts Lorraine to the dance. History is fixed! Marty will be born!
