Storyline

At the outskirts of New Orleans a sewage tunnel caves in; city officials are less concerned about the worker who was killed then about possible repercussions on the impending Mardi Gras in the French Quarter, which is the tourist hight point of the year in Louisiana, so the priority is to prevent a panic. Still Allison Beauchamp, under whose responsibility public works fall in city hall, calls on her intimate friend, geologist Matt Andrews, who is extremely cautious since an accident only he blames himself for, to investigate. Shortly after another cave in, he finds and reports -even arranging radar material was opposed by the Mardi Gras lobby- that such sink holes are caused by the lingering on of a fire in underground tunnels trough peat layers, so there's no way of telling where and when more sink-holes will collapse, but it may happen all over the city, and two million tourists joining in the reveling increase the risk, so everyone is in danger.

Goofs

The exhaled breath of characters speaking to each other outside during the Mardi Gras parade is clearly visible. This almost certainly reveals the location not to be New Orleans in the spring time. See more »

If You haven't got anything else to do on a monday evening this could be something to waste Your time with. But be aware, it is more interesting to watch the news.

This is a typical american movie: Some guy discovers a potential disaster, nobody, especially the authorities believe him and he is proven to be right.

Trash.
