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

Missed the mark... but good acting
2 September 2008 | by lolliesRyumSee all my reviews

I'm not quite sure if I watched the same Australian film as the majority of the other reviewers (or if they in fact are employees of channel nine!) This was a really disappointing film...

The casting was spot on... the acting was great... the script was useless.

It was badly paced... some story lines were wrapped up too quickly, others not even explained...

I feel like there was never any connection felt between any of the characters or story lines... if I felt anything it was because of the wonderful acting on the show.
