Synopsis:
Director Roger Donaldson presents Dante's Peak, starring Pierce Brosnan and Linda Hamilton erupting with special effects, the story of a volcano with attitude and havoc and destruction it wreaks.

Mother Nature is behaving strangely in Dante's Peak, a quiet town of 8,000 people nestled at the foot of a towering mountain in the Cascade Range. No one, except visiting volcanologist Harry Dalton (Brosnan), heeds the warning signals - ground deformation and gas emissions - that the long-dormant volcanic peak is about to blow its top. Mayor Rachel Wando (Hamilton) finds herself caught between those who believe the mountain poses no threat and the handsome, concerned scientist who wants the community to go on alert. At a town meeting, debate on the question ends abruptly when a violent earthquake shakes the community. The citizens panic as volcanic ash covers the mountain. Harry drives Rachel home to get her two young children (Jeremy Foley and Jamie Renee Smith), only to discover that they have gone up the maintain in their mother's car to evacuate their grandmother (Elizabeth Hoffman). Racing against time, Harry and Rachel must rescue the three and escape the erupting volcano.
