During the largest meteor shower in 10,000 years, a rogue asteroid collides with the moon, causing a huge explosion and sending moon fragments catapulting to Earth. Soon, unusual phenomena begin to unnerve the entire planet: cell phones are disrupted, the normal pattern of the tides shift and heavy objects like cars become temporarily weightless - all as the world's leading scientists uncover unsettling evidence that the moon's orbit may have been permanently altered. Even more frightening, they discover that the new orbit has put the Earth directly in the moon's path and there are only 39 days remaining until it crashes into the planet. Now it's up to a small group of experts, cheered on by all nations of the world, to embark on a mission to the moon to try to prevent the deadly impact and save the planet from destruction.
