Plot & Details

A pair of deadly super-storms is set to collide over a Rutland, MO, and the only hope for the people of the small town is the trust a father places in his son in this elemental thriller that's sure to make Twister look like a dust devil. No one believes 14-year-old amateur meteorologist Eric Dobbs (Jesse Eisenberg) when he tries to convince them that their town is set to be leveled by the colliding storm systems, not even the National Weather Service. With time running short and winds picking up, Eric's father, Tom (John Schneider), takes his son's warning to heart when a series of supercharged electrical bursts plunge the town into darkness. As the sky darkens and the storm clouds roll in, it's up to Eric and his father to save the citizens of Rutland it's too late.
