Lori Pratt is a brash safety inspector for the largest
mining company in the country who throws herself into
her work to escape a less-than perfect personal life.
Although her husband John is an emergency rescue
worker and scientist, he's clueless when it comes to
saving their marriage.
In the middle of a routine accident investigation, a
freak explosion traps Lori deep below the surface.
When John reaches her, he notices a mysterious heat
source behind the disaster but has no time to figure
out the real cause in the unstable tunnel. Once they
climb out of the mind, the horrific scene that meets
them above ground is far worse than anything they
could have imagined. An extremely rare and powerful
volcanic eruption is underway; Lori watches helplessly
as burning acid bubbles up into the river and fires
race through town. Meanwhile, John's father and young
children are desperately trying to find a safe place
from the torrent of hot ash and lava that threatens to
bury them alive.
Lori's only thought is to save her family, but John
knows that the disaster will reach far beyond their
own lives to destroy the entire planet if he cannot
warn the government in time. Finally realizing that
they need each other more than ever, the couple will
have to band together if they want their outrageous
escape plan to work.
