A situation of this magnitude had always been talked about -- but could it ever really happen?
Jake Shepherd is piloting a flight to Seattle when out of the blue, his aircraft falls from the sky. The power-grid across the United States crashes, leaving all computerized machines crippled, sending the country into a disastrous tailspin.
Alice Shepherd is working the emergency room when hundreds of injured people pour in needing help. With no electricity, resources are limited--Once the back up generators fail, the hospital will not be able to handle the influx of patients being brought in, guaranteeing that all hell will break loose. Everyone is speculating and panicking. No one knows what really happened. The only thing everyone can agree on is their simple, convenient, technological world is gone. Everyone is left to fight--Kill or be killed. Survive or die.
The best thing that can be said about this story is that it's trite and cliche. The most glaring deficiency is the lack of character development. Some of the crash survivors aren't even described at all, nor are they involved in any dialog. It also seems implausible that their injuries aren't more significant. Worst of all, this story is unfinished. It's impossible for me to evaluate an incomplete story.
Scott Ellis's performance is adequate except for the major production error where some special effects were added. He actually reads over himself.
