Storyline

New South Wales (Australia), 2012. Global warming caused temperatures to rise 2° worldwide. Australia suffers permanent drought. Ever scarcer potable water has become the main contraband. The fire department is the key service coordinating other branches, even the police, in emergencies. Now a storm threatens the vast suburbs of metropolitan state capital Sydney, coordinate David Langmore is given emergency powers. Alas water supply is insufficient, and the fire knocks out the electric power, hence everything else. Even devoted medical and public professionals are distracted by loved ones in urgent danger. A TV reporter is on the trace of a corrupt deal between useless state PM Angela Boardman and the power company. Written by KGF Vissers

terrible
13 September 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

this could possibly be the worst TV movie ever. Way to many plot holes and terribly written i cant believe this ran for 2 hours! they cut so much out of it. Im ashamed to even be in NSW its a lame attempt in trying to make a movie based on 2012 (so called Apocalypse) and on the bushfires over the past several years. "Set 5 years in the future. "After years without rain fire engulfs the entire city." this really confused me the fire didn't even reach sydney! just smoke. And what is it with the soap stars? they brung 2 home and away stars who barely had a role. there was no emotion in this. The only good thing in the movie was "Cameron daddo" he done a great job
