It doesn't matter where you are, but, sink holes can be anywhere and sometimes they just open up swallowing everything.

However, this isn't the case here.

On a beautiful day, Joan Conroy (Gina Holden) and her friends Heather and Jeffrey (Dominika Juillet and Paul J. Ballin) board a hot air balloon in a peaceful protest that'll fly them over the corporate offices of Synco. The company hopes to rejuvenate the town with sustainable energy and that includes fracking.

Over the campus, they fly until some steam is released and it blows them off course and eventually crashing in some wires. Jeffrey doesn't make it.

Upset over her friend and co-workers death, Joan contemplates her life and decides that she might put the house up for sale and quit her job. She's also pushing her daughter, Paige (Brooke Mackenzie) to perfection.

On the day of a track meet, a group of kids climb aboard the small bus, driven by Paige's father Gary (Jeremy London) and head for the meet. Gary decides to take a shortcut.

No one knows it, but a CGI sink hole swallows the town of Summerville and causes a few other sink holes over a six county area. Yes, the kids are swallowed up whole.

Gary is injured and can't move, but Paige is able to help the others, which include, star track member Abe (Mark Siegler), school whore Lana (Kelle Cantwell) Lana's best friend and mean girl Sandra (Kaitlin Wright) and Paige's ex-boyfriend Jason (Paris Dylan).

Before the bus sinks, Lana had tried to put her moves on Jason but when he rebukes her, she sets her sights on Abe after the crash. She also tells Sandra that the severe cut on her leg is going to cause a big scar.

Joan goes to the fire station to formally resign and Chief Caldwell (Robert Pike Daniel) tells her a story about a rookie that he took under his wing. It's about this time that everyone learns of the sink holes.

But, ace reporter Tracy Campbell (Rebecca Grant) has them all beat as she reports live as to what's going on and she even has footage of Summerville being swallowed up!

This is about as far as I'm going to go with this review, because the rest of it will have you shaking your head and wondering how this had ever gotten made.

It's a disastrous mess.
