The best and brightest scientists in the country are taken to a secret refuge in order to survive a world-ending cataclysm. A small group decides to try and circumvent the disaster but are told any attempt would be futile. Rather than sit cozy and watch the planet be destroyed, they escape the retreat and fight all government opposition to save the world in spite of the official inactivity.
