Andrea, Lexie and Sarah are ordinary high school friends until the day the world goes dark. After an EMP shuts down the grid, life becomes a battle. Andrea's upscale lifestyle didn't prepare her family for the apocalypse. Lexie's homeschool farmstead is better off, but for how long? Sarah's urban apartment quickly becomes a death trap. Without technology and no help on the way, each teen and her family struggles to survive. As society goes deeper into anarchy and neighbors become foes, can they beat the odds and stay alive?
