Kristian, an experienced geologist, has accepted a job offer that will require moving from the town of Geiranger. While getting his family ready to go, he and his colleagues record small movements in the earth that indicate that disaster is imminent. With less than ten minutes to react, it becomes a race against time in order to save as many people as possible, including his own family. Uthaug’s gripping tsunami-peril thriller will resonate with anyone who has contemplated the inevitability of shifting plates beneath us.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
