He warns U.S. President Thomas Wilson that the crust of the earth is becoming unstable and that without proper preparations for saving a fraction of the world's population, the entire race is doomed. Meanwhile, writer Jackson Curtis stumbles on the same information. While the world's leaders race to build "arks" to escape the impending cataclysm, Curtis struggles to find a way to save his family.

Hey, hey, watch out. Watch out.

Welcome, my friend.

Great to see you.

Yeah, glad you made it.

This can't be Ajit.

He's a little man already.

- Unbelievable.

- I hope you're hungry, Adrian.

I'm famished. How are you, Aparna?

- I made that fish curry you love.

- I can't wait.

She gets more beautiful

every time I see her. Why is that?

Strange, isn't it?

But her fish curry is still awful.

You were mysterious on the phone.

Why didn't you attend the conference?

- I will show you, Adrian, sir.

- Satnam, stop "siring" me.

How deep do we need to go?

Eleven thousand feet.

I searched all over India

for this thing.

Used to be the deepest copper mine

in the world.

Remember my brother, Gurdeep?

He's a student now.

Namaste, Dr. Helmsley, sir.

Adrian. It's just Adrian.

Just don't pour too much, huh?

How do you work in this heat?

You've come on a good day,

my friend.

Sometimes it can hit 120 degrees.

You have to come and meet

Dr. Lokesh...

...a Fellow of quantum physics

at the university in Chennai.

Dr. Helmsley.

So, what are we looking at?

These are neutrinos acting normally.

Minuscule mass,

no electrical charge.

They pass through ordinary matter

almost undisturbed.

Your message said the count doubled

after the last solar eruptions.

That was last week.

But this happened two days ago.

The biggest Sun eruptions

in human history...

...causing the highest neutrino count

we've ever recorded.

My God.

That's not what worries me, Adrian.

For the first time ever...

...the neutrinos are causing

a physical reaction.

That's impossible.

That feels very good.

Please, follow me.

You won't believe this.

This water tank goes down

another 6000 feet.

It looks like the neutrinos

coming from the Sun...

...have mutated into a new kind

of nuclear particle.

They're heating up

the Earth's core...

...and suddenly act like microwaves.

Ladies and gentlemen,

as promised, no speech...

...just a thank-you...

...because tonight,

with your extraordinary generosity...

...we have raised $1.7 million.

Have a stiff drink,

because I'm locking the doors...

- ... and passing the hat around again.

- It's okay. It's okay.

- I work for the White House.

- I don't care.

This is a black-tie event.

Scotty.

Hey. Adrian, I thought you were

in India. What's going on?

- I need yourjacket.

- What?

I gotta speak to Anheuser.

Give me your damn jacket, please.

- All right.

- Okay?

- All right, here. Here.

- Hold that for a minute, will you?

Hey! Easy, that's a $600 jacket.

Mr. Anheuser?

Mr. Anheuser.

I need to talk to you.

- Do I know you?

- Sorry, sir.

My name's Dr. Adrian Helmsley.

I'm a deputy geologist at the Office

of Science and Technology Policy.

Excuse me, fellas.

You know that this is a fundraiser,

not a frat party, right?

- It's important, sir.

- You know what? It always is.

Make an appointment with my...

You know, even better:

Have your boss bring it up

at the quarterly briefing.

There's a good plan.

I just traveled 20 straight hours

to get here, sir.

I haven't slept in two days.

You need to read this, sir.

You need to read it now.

Let me guess,

national geology crisis?

Excuse me.

- Who do you report to?

- Lee Cavazos.

Not anymore.

Alan, bring the car around.

- You're gonna wish you took a shower.

- Sir?

You're about to meet the president.

What's going on?

Get that to the office.

No G8! No G8! No G8!

Good morning.

I would like to meet privately

with my fellow heads of state.

Mr. Makarenko wishes

to have his interpreters present.

Mr. President, I can assure you...
