Synopsis

An enormous meteor explodes near Earth’s atmosphere, raining down deadly debris across the globe. In three days the city of Los Angeles will be destroyed, leaving one desperate father on a frantic race to find his wife and daugther before it’s too late.

Dove Review

This is an engaging film. The story is realistic as it deals with nuclear warheads which explode in space and the resulting meteor showers and debris which threatens the earth as it poisons the water. David (Joe Lando) is a husband and father and his twelve-year-old daughter Alison feels as if her father doesn’t take her seriously. David loves his family but has become sidetracked. When Alison wakes up in the night for fear of what is happening to the earth, he ignores her. But he soon learns the penetrating truth that not only was Alison right, but that she has become poisoned after taking a drink of water.

Joe’s family is quarantined and he finds himself on the run, attempting to find an antidote and to find his family from whom he is separated due to the tragic events happening to the earth. The special effects are very well done in this film as is the acting. Joe winds up helping some others out along the way including a woman named Lynn. He saves her life with CPR and they struggle ahead with her goal of finding medical attention and Joe’s goal of locating his wife and daughter and helping his daughter with the antidote.

This is a gripping story which places the viewer in the film and the viewer may well ask himself or herself what he or she would do in like circumstances. We gladly award this movie our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal. Remarkable!
