In a world that is increasingly dependent on electricity, a power outage seems like an awful predicament. Mankind is using electricity for the past 140 years, but still, we can't imagine ourselves living in a world deprived of electricity. With this in mind, after a lingering power outage, a father and his two daughters will find themselves trapped in a completely different reality; one that will change their lives forever. But is this outage regional, or does it affect the entire country? As these, and other, more crucial questions require an answer, no one can tell if the family has what it takes to survive, nonetheless, they still have no other choice but to put to the test their skills, adaptability and endurance, but above of all, challenge the integrity of their familial bonds..
