Plot Synopsis

Opportunistic billionaire Robert Terrell has fulfilled a lifelong obsession with "weather creation" technology though his Atmospheric Research Institute. But during a test run, a blast of energy is sent into the ionosphere with unexpected results. The experiments hurtle the planet towards destruction -- hurricanes change course, winds go instantly from hot to cold, torrential rains and explosive lightening storms blanket the globe. Only one scientist, Kirk Hafner, steps forward to demand that the system be terminated. Terrell is undeterred and convinces Army General Braxton that the technology is a key military weapon to ensure super power status. Realizing he's powerless to stop the project by himself, Hafner contacts news reporter Danni Nelson with plans to expose Terrell. It's a task that won't come easy, as Hafner quickly discovers the motives and loyalties of authorities are not in his favor. As devastating and extreme weather events continue, it becomes a race against time to shut down the system before the earth is destroyed.
