The Greenland is a film showing the story about another planetary disaster. A split asteroid falls to Earth in the form of many fragments of various sizes. Although people expected only a bright sky show, the first shard destroyed the Florida. Time after time, the fragments strike the Earth again – and the very last fragment will most likely cause the death of all mankind.
John (Gerard Butler), The Greenland protagonist, struggles to save his family. He becomes aware that there are bunkers in Greenland that can protect people from asteroid rain. But how to get to Greenland? This question remains open.
