It is the middle of the 21st century. Extremely sophisticated robots do everything from nannying to prostitution, supplying the illusion of feeling, but true emotion has eluded the android builders. Until Professor Hobby builds David, a robot boy who can really love. In the same manner that some people substitute pets for more demanding human relationships, the Swinton's try to fill the void left by the illness (and subsequent cryogenic animation) of their young son, with David. Unlike a pet, however, David requires more than taking without giving, and his plight illustrates the dangers inherent when dog-substitutes demand giving in return

Notte di Natale, Stati Uniti. Un adolescente è ormai scettico sull’esistenza di Babbo Natale. Mentre ascolta di nascosto i genitori affrettarsi a mettere i regali sotto l’albero di Natale, sente all’esterno sopraggiungere un treno. È il Polar Express, il treno natalizio che conduce fino al Polo Nord, luogo nel quale Babbo Natale parte per portare i regali in tutto il mondo. Nonostante sia titubante, il ragazzo, su invito del controllore, sale sul convoglio, dove conosce una coetanea volitiva dalla spiccata sensibilità, un ragazzo malinconico e solitario, salito successivamente, e un presuntuoso saputello. Tra mille spettacolari traversie, il Polar Express giunge a destinazione. Qui il ragazzo trova una piazza piena di elfi festanti e vede, tra il tripudio generale, arrivare Babbo Natale, pronto alla partenza per la consegna dei regali. Una campanella, staccatasi da una renna della slitta natalizia gli rotola accanto; il ragazzo la raccoglie e la scuote: dapprima non sente nulla, ma poi, subito dopo, ammettendo di credere a ciò che sta vivendo, riesca a percepire il soave suono che si origina. Babbo Natale lo omaggia della campanella e gli raccomanda di non perderla, ma il ragazzo, durante il viaggio di ritorno non la trova più nella tasca della vestaglia in cui l’aveva riposta. Tornato a casa, il ragazzo trova un piccolo pacco, al cui interno ritrova la campanella smarrita, da cui, armonioso, fuoriesce ancora il suono del Natale

Al fine di ottenere i finanziamenti necessari per ultimare il progetto, Hammond contatta i paleontologi Alan Grant ed Ellie Sattler, e il matematico Ian Malcom: grazie a un loro parere positivo le resistenze dei finanziatori verrebbero meno. Il parco è interamente governato da una rete di computer, ma Nedry, il responsabile della gestione informatica, corrotto da un'industria, trafuga alcuni embrioni di dinosauro e fa andare il sistema in tilt proprio mentre gli scienziati sono in visita al parco in compagnia dei due nipoti di Hammond, Tim e Lex. I recinti elettrificati di protezione si aprono, e un temibile tirannosauro riesce a liberarsi: per salvarsi, Alan e i bambini sono costretti a fuggire nella foresta. Il giorno seguente riusciranno a raggiungere dopo varie peripezie il centro visitatori, dove nel frattempo Hammond, Ellie e Ian cercano di ripristinare i sistemi di sicurezza. Quando anche questo luogo verrà invaso dai dinosauri il gruppo abbandonerà l'isola e Hammond il suo ambizioso e scriteriato progetto
