The entire world watches the largest meteor shower in 10,000 years. Suddenly, a brown dwarf star smashes into the moon, knocking it off course. Strange anomalies begin – cell phone disruptions, unusual static charges, odd tidal behavior and a horrifying effect on gravity. 

 

The world’s leading scientists – Alex Kittner (David James Elliott), Maddie Rhodes (Natasha Henstridge) and Roland Emmerson (Benjamin Sadler), soon discover the moon’s new orbit
has put it on a collision course with Earth! They spearhead an international mission in an attempt to restore the moon to its original orbit.
