Experience a tale of science, culture and thrilling adventure.

Earth is a planet born of fire. For billions of years, volcanoes have helped create the world we know—the continents, the air we breathe and all life on Earth. With over 500 active volcanoes, the Earth is bursting at the seams with forces that create extraordinary ecosystems and wildlife habitats. Join intrepid explorer Carsten Peter as he dodges boulders at the edge of an active volcano in Indonesia. Descend to a lava lake in Vanuatu and visit the incredible mineral deposit fields in Ethiopia. Travel across the globe to see the archaeological ghost town of Pompeii. Witness the devastating effects of the recent Kilauea eruption in Hawaii. Audiences will be on the edge of their seats as they discover molten worlds and exploding craters in this adrenaline-filled film.
