Storyline

When former Wall Street executive Peter Salem is released from prison, he heads for the small town of Bunker Hill, Kansas, where his ex-wife and their children have started a new life. Soon after he arrives in town, all power is lost - there is no electricity, and cars and computers suddenly shut down. Community leaders are at a loss to explain. Is it the rapture? A massive terrorist attack? Aliens? Cut off from the world, the town's militant past is reawakened and forces coalesce to protect citizens from an unseen enemy, represented to some by Mr. Farook, an elderly Pakistani immigrant who owns the local convenience store. The town's fear leads to the creation of a posse of gunmen, resulting in torture, illegal searches and eventually, murder. Written by mlc

What a great film!
30 May 2008 | by (Kansas) – See all my reviews

I was so impressed! I did not know what to expect when I went to the premier in Russell, KS. My family is originally from the Bunker Hill area so I was excited to see familiar landmarks on the "big screen", but I was really taken with film! I was so impressed with the humor and story line! It was original and an interesting mix of people and cultures. Directore, Kevin Willmontt, captured much of the little things that Kansas holds near and dear and portrayed them in a light that made one proud of their home and state. I hope this film goes far, it was a very nice change of pace and made Kansas out to be a little more what it is really like, not just Toto and tornadoes.
