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.

This movie is not pretentious so we do not have to judge it if it is. Nice storyline,mediocre acting and horrible special effects. 5 out of 10. A typical TV movie,if you have nothing else to do, check it out. I don't think this movie was made with a large budget and it clearly shows. It must say something about this movie that I have some difficulties to complete ten lines about it. Here goes,I don't consider John Corbet to be a good actor and he proofs it once again in this movie. He is just as bad as in Sex and the City, he never convinces. Who does convince is ms Steen as Allison Beauchamp, she probably will never perform in a large production but as her resume shows she'll easily reach her retirement as an actor.
