An hour before dawn on April 18, 1906, Phillip is awakened by the barking of dogs and the fearful whinnying of his father's horses. Moments later, San Francisco is struck by a tremendous earthquake. As walls buckle and bricks rain down on them, Phillip's family struggles to escape from their own home. Then he remembers the horses. Can Phillip save them, and himself, in time?
Phillip wakes with an uneasy sense that something isn't right and within minutes his world turns topsy-turvy.
