5 Years Later
It's been five years since you had your last child. Your marriage has since fallen apart and you are now divorced. You decide to take your kids, now ages 14, 12 & 5, and make a fresh start in a new city. You move to the picturesque town of Dante's Peak, which was recently named the second most desirable place to live in America. Your mother comes to live with you as well. With the money you made working for a succesful law firm, you really don't need to work, but you find that you need something to keep you busy. You decide to run for mayor of Dante's Peak, and with your reputation as an advocate, you are elected in a landslide victory.
What no one knows is that the long dormant volcano located just above Dante's Peak is priming for action. Seismic monitoring devices in the area start to give a clue to the destruction that is about to happen. A famous volcanologist is called in.
William Edward Duncan
The volcanologist is convinced that this "harmless" volcano will erupt, and soon. You are willing to believe him but neither of you can convince the city council of the imminent threat. They refuse to evacuate the area during the height of the city's tourist season. By the time the council is willing to see reason, it is too late. The volcano has erupted and your children and mother are right in the danger zone. Together the two of you try to reach them and get them to safety. You make it to the house but are cut off by the lava flow, your only choice is to cross the lake by boat. Sulfuric gas from the volcano has turned the lake into acid and your mother is killed in the crossing. After much difficulty, you are able to make it to safety.
You and the volcanologist have a lot of work to do in the aftermath of the eruption. While working together you realize your feelings for one another. You decide to get married. A year later you welcome a baby girl and decide to name her after your late mother, you want her middle name to mean brave or powerful.
