Storyline

In 1883, a Boston newspaperman writes a detailed eyewitness account of a natural disaster -- a full day before it happens. Working in his office late one night, Henry Soames finds his concentration rocked by four momentous explosions. When he emerges from his trance, he files a sensational report about the eruption of Krakatoa, a volcano in the Dutch East Indies. The paper's editors run the story across the front page and the following morning the paper sells like hotcakes. Eager to promote his new ace reporter, the publisher is puzzled when Soames denies responsibility for the scoop -- he can't even remember where he was the night before. Word leaks out to the public, and Soames soon finds himself in the reluctant position of town seer. Written by Paley Center for Media
