When a long-dormant volcano near the town of Climax begins to stir, everyone knows it is only a matter of time before it erupts. As ash falls from the sky and rivers run red with molten lava, the townsfolk must abandon their homes for higher ground. With limited resources and no rescue in sight, this tightly knit community will either perish together or find strength in each other as they battle nature’s fury.
