The film's plot follows a group of people who find themselves caught up in the aftermath of a catastrophic earthquake that strikes the city of Los Angeles. The film is directed by Larry Elikann and stars Charles Shaughnessy, Tracy Nelson, and Ken Barnett in the lead roles.

The story begins with character Owen Jennings, played by Charles Shaughnessy, a seismologist who is working with a geological team to study the San Andreas Fault. When the team discovers that the fault has become more unstable than ever, Owen becomes convinced that a catastrophic earthquake is imminent. Despite his warnings, the authorities dismiss his findings, and the people of Los Angeles remain unprepared for the devastating event that is about to unfold.

As predicted, a magnitude 7.9 earthquake hits Los Angeles, causing widespread destruction and chaos throughout the city. Owen’s wife, Ronnie, played by Tracy Nelson, is trapped in a collapsed parking garage with a group of strangers, including a nurse, a workman, and an old man with heart problems. The group must work together to survive and find a way to escape the rubble before it's too late. Meanwhile, Owen tries to make his way through the destroyed city to reach his wife and reunite with her.

As the survivors struggle to stay alive, they face danger not only from the earthquake itself but also from gas leaks, fires, and looters. The group must make tough decisions and do whatever it takes to survive. Along the way, they also encounter other people who have been affected by the disaster, including a young couple who are about to have their first child and a father and son who are trying to make their way to safety.

As the days pass by, desperation sets in as resources become scarce, and the survivors realize that they may not be rescued in time. They start to lose hope of ever making it out alive. Meanwhile, Owen continues to search for his wife, encountering various obstacles and setbacks along the way.

The film’s climax is intense and emotional as the survivors are forced to make a final, life-or-death decision. The aftershocks of the earthquake continue to shake the city, and the group must overcome their fears and come together as a team to face their ultimate fate.
