Plot Summary: Colonel Ryan Beckett (Mark Dascascos) an Army intelligence officer and his team of misfit tactical mavericks are called away from leave on orders from President Nelson (Rutger Hauer), only to be informed that the gravest threat to all humanity has become their ultimate challenge. After a Chinese nuclear explosion results in a shift at the planet's core, a series of terrible natural disasters occur. Man's quest for harnessing the power of nuclear weapons has wreaked havoc on the earth. The Pacific plates are shifting. The world is heating up. Earthquakes. Volcanic eruptions. An apocalypse of biblical proportions. With Earth facing the prospect of falling out of orbit and drifting towards the sun, the world turns to a scientist who comes up with a shaky plan. They have just three days left to deflect the plates successfully with the power of another thermo-nuclear bomb - ground zero: Los Angeles. As both heat and panic flare through the cities of the world, and with the help of a group of the US's top scientists, Beckett must battle to save the planet and fight for the life of his daughter caught between marauding gangs, taking the lawless streets hostage before the raging fire of hell on earth consumes them all!
