In 2009 a highly regarded team of scientists confirm to the global heads of state that the world as we know it, will soon come to an end.

By 2012, a plan has been devised by world leaders to save as much of mankind as possible, but unfortunately not every man can be saved.

When Jackson Curtis and his two kids go on a family trip to Yellowstone, they stumble upon a massive research facility in a dried up lake bed and uncover the secret of the impending apocalypse the government has been hiding.

Jackson must take matters into his own hands as he embarks on a desperate race to save both his family and himself while witnessing earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis and whatever other natural disasters the earth has in store for humanity.
