Colonel Ryan Beckett (Mark Dacascos) 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. Man's quest for harnessing the power of nuclear weapons has wreaked havoc on the earth. The Pacific plates are shifting. The world is hotting up. Earthquakes. Volcanic eruptions. An apocalypse of biblical proportions. They have just three days left to deflect the plates successfully with the power of another thermonuclear bomb - ground zero: Los Angeles. Heat and panic flare through the cities of the world. With the help of a select group of scientists Beckett must battle to save the planet before the raging fire of hell on earth consumes them all.
