April O'Neil a beautiful, young television investigative reporter at Channel 3's Eyewitness News, is doing a series of stories on the recent excalation of theivery in New York City. One evening after her nightly newscast she encounteers thieves in the act of robbing one of the TV stations's remote vans. The street lights go out. We hear the sounds of a struggle. Shadowy figures lock in combat in the darkness behind her. When the police arrive, they find April dazed but unharmed, with her assailants neatly tied up around her.  Inside the sewers of New York, April's rescuers are revealed: Raphael, Leonardo, Michaelangelo, and Donatello -- the illustrious Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles -- who have returned to their subteranean den to report to their ninja master: an aging, four-foot tall talking rat named Splinter. After some pizza, the tempestuous Raphael goes out and wins a Central Park fight with Casey Jones a self-appointed vigilante who wields a variety
of sports implements as weapons. Meanwhile, the silent crimes continue to escalate, despite April's prodding of ineffective police chief Ross Sterns to clean up the city. But April does manage to incite the group responsible for the crimes: a clandestine organization known as The Foot which attacks her again, this time in the subway.  Again, the heroic Raphael saves her.  This time, however, he brings her to the Turtles' sewer den. Here, Splinter and his Turtles tell the spooked April the story of their origin, which involves a sewer encounter with radioactive ooze
which caused them to grow to the size of men and gave them the gift of speech.  As the Turtles escort April to her apartment, Splinter is "rat-napped" by The Foot.  The heartbroken and confused Turtles return to April's apartment. The Foot launches an all-out attack, demolishing April's apartment in a knock-down, drag-out battle as she, the Turtles and Casey Jones all flee. They arrive at April's childhood home in thee country, where the somber Turtles deal with their
defeat, each in his own way. In the calm serenity of the countryside Casey and April discover each other. At the same time, with somewhat mixed emotions, April and Raphael feel an attraction to each other -- but this feeling can never be acknowledged because of the difference in species.  The Turtles now discover, through a mystical communique with their still-imprisoned Master Splinteer, that the true ninja is not of the body, but of the mind. Accordingly, they all begin to
retrain and hone their ninja abilities.  With their new knowledge and skills, the Turtles return to the city. While Casey manages to rescue Splinter with Danny's help the Turtles engage in their final battle with The Foot -- below the streets, on the streets, and above the streets.  The battle climaxes with Splinter defeating The Shredder, who is revealed to be the assasin of Splinter's own ninja master. New York is saved, and the Turtles are reunited with their "father."
