The story: Self-styled inventor Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg) and his teen daughter Tessa (Nicola Peltz) find an old hauler. He repairs it only to find that he has revived Optimus Prime, badly damaged after the battles of the last movie. Now, the threat to Cade and his daughter is not from the Decepticons but from a ruthless bounty hunter Lockdown and a shadowy but powerful branch of the American government harnessing Transformers weapons technology.
