Academy Award nominee Elisabeth Shue stars with Kyle MacLachlan and Dermot Mulroney in this intensely gripping story of a mysterious power failure that leads to the social breakdown of a major city. All forms of communication are wiped out - no electricity, no cash machines and no telecommunication. The system and the rules society takes for granted begin crumbling down. Rumors of looters and shootings increase the fear and mistrust among frantic citizens. Now everything that society had taken for granted no longer works…and ordinary rules no longer apply.
