Full Synopsis

A year ago, the greatest quake in history rocked America’s West Coast. Get ready to rumble. Because nature isn’t through with us...

After an earth-splitting quake shatters the West Coast, seismologist Samantha Hill (Emmy winner Kim Delaney, NYPD Blue) guides the country through history’s worst natural disaster. Working with geologist Jordan (Dean Cain, The Runaway), under the auspices of the American President (Emmy and Golden Globe winner Beau Bridges, We Were the Mulvaneys), Samantha is a symbol of courage and resilience. But when a tsunami wipes Waikiki off the map, her fears about the after-effects are justified. Induced by the 10.5, areas seismically quiet for centuries are awakened: Bald Mountain engulfs a ski resort in a deadly cloud of smoke and ash, boiling water rises from the earth flooding Monument Valley, Hoover Dam crumbles, releasing a tidal wave of crushing waters, and Mount Rushmore explodes in a fiery hell of molten lava.

As an escalating series of quakes, volcanoes, sinkholes, explosions, floods, and weather anomalies threatens to turn the landscape into a wasteland, the greatest peril of all is still approaching – a rumbling Texas fault line slicing its way toward the two largest nuclear reactors in the country. The meltdown would result in the loss of hundreds of million of lives. Samantha and President Hollister agree that only one man can help them—the retired scientist who predicted this terrifying natural disaster years before—Samantha’s own father, Dr. Earl Hill (Golden Globe nominee Frank Langella, Superman Returns), now counted among the possible casualties of a massive Las Vegas quake. Samantha’s ultimate mission: find her father and save the country as the ravenous, ever-increasing maw of the rampaging fault edges us all toward a nuclear apocalypse.
