Synopsis[edit]

Oil drilling causes the Earth's crust to sink, pushing the magma up at the West Coast, triggering earthquakes and volcanic eruptions that devastate Seattle, Tacoma, and other cities, killing thousands, if not millions of people in the process. A crew must detonate nuclear fusion weapons underground and push the crust back into its proper position. Meanwhile, on the surface, there is a debate as to whether to inform the public about the impending crisis.
