“Dante's Peak” quotes(1997)
Plot – Volcanologist Harry Dalton is sent to study the seismic activity near Dante's Peak. The mayor of this small town in the northern United States is Rachel Wando, who runs a local restaurant and is a single mother. Thanks to his thorough testing, Harry soon recognizes the unmistakable signs of the activities that precede an eruption. He informs the mayor, who does not want to alarm the population since she has just signed a deal with a businessman. Rachel, in the end, is forced to admit the reality of things and during a town meeting, when the first tremors are felt, she tries to avoid spreading panic. An ash cloud stands above the mountain peak and is moving closer to the city. When the earthquake begins, Harry helps Rachel reach her two children, who had gone to their grandmother Ruth's house. The group faces difficult situations, hovering between life and death. Only the grandmother loses her life in the middle of water polluted by lava, while the others manage to escape danger. When the cloud disperses and calm has returned, Harry asks Rachel and the kids to live all together as a new family.
