Fast-paced action movie in which a geologist and his family face a race against time to try and stop a series of ice quakes causing a potentially apocalyptic disaster. Michael Webster (Brendan Fehr) works for the military and is a specialist in his field. His skills are put to the test on Christmas Eve when unusual geological activity begins occurring in Alaska - apparently related to the collapse of a giant ice shelf off the coast of Russia. Michael is out on a hike in search of a Christmas tree with his wife, Emily (Holly Elissa) and his children, Tia (Jodelle Ferland) and Shane (Ryan Grantham), when the ice quakes begin to strike. The family find themselves battling to save not only their own lives, but possibly the entire human race, as the quakes threaten to trigger a devastating methane explosion.
