Synopsis

Earth becomes a rumbling jaw as the greatest quake in humankind's history threatens to rock the world.

As dawn breaks, an earthquake trembles through Seattle, Washington. Measuring at a 7.9 magnitude, the quake changes the face of the city within minutes. Monuments are shattered, streets flooded, and thousand are reported missing in the devastation.

It's the biggest natural disaster to hit the West Coast in over a century.

The aftershock hits Northern California shortly thereafter and stuns Dr. Samantha Hill, an expert on hidden fault lines and Jordan Fisher, Executive Director of the University of Washington's Earthquake Center, with its 8.4 magnitude.

The chance of an aftershock being greater than the quake is virtually unprecedented and foretells of greater and even more devastating disaster to come.

Samantha fears that the Earth's fault lines are not only connecting but reaching deeper under the surface to undetected fault lines 700 kilometres below. The chain reaction could split the world, sending the entire west coast of the United States into the Pacific Ocean.

The destruction continues. The aftershock that tears through San Francisco reaches a magnitude of 9.2 and Samantha's speculation becomes a terrifying reality.

As the panic spreads, Jordan knows the only solution to prevent the inevitable is to fuse the fault lines.

But the one and only way to generate enough heat is so drastic that the sole person with the authority to make it happen is the President of the United States.

If the nuclear explosion works, 50 million lives could be saved. But if it fails ... annihilation.
