The lights are out. Transportation is a thing of the past. A record-breaking heatwave is coming. Chaos is only just beginning.
Correctional officer Mason Brady wants his shift to end so he can go home and apologize to his wife for an argument they had. When an EMP destroys the power grid, the facility goes into a lockdown. There’s no chance of him leaving.
Taking advantage of the dark, inmates plan an escape and turn the maximum security prison upside down. Mason finds himself in grave danger. His only chance to make it out alive comes from someone he least expects.
Heather Brady is preparing for a holiday barbecue when the lights go out. Her phone doesn’t work. Her car won’t start. Her gut tells her it’s not a typical power outage. Mason’s father often talked of the end of the world as we know it. Could this be it? Crime is on the rise. Her safety is at risk, but she’s determined to pick her teenage daughters up from school.
Worried about Mason and when he’ll make it home, she does the best she can to protect the kids from the harsh new world. Looting and violence are things she doesn’t want them to experience. When an unexpected visitor shows up, Heather is thankful. But a friend in disguise is more dangerous than anyone she’s encountered on the streets.
Hope is all the family has to survive the apocalypse. Being together strengthens them, but will they all make it out alive?
