James and Lily, estranged from society, live off the grid, raising their young daughter in a cocoon of comfort and sustainability. When a mysterious mass text ripples its way across the country, triggering a crippling, apocalyptic cyber attack, their home transitions from sheltered modern oasis to a fortress for the estranged old friends that show up at their door for protection and community. The unexpected reunion--abundant with revelry and remembrances, generously enhanced by organic wine and weed--is quickly undermined by the slights of the past, the spark of lingering flirtations and the threat of a locally grown new world order. Balancing tense confrontations with slivers of levity, director Denis Henry Hennelly pinpoints a future where ideology explodes into action in every area. Written by Anonymous

Neither a 'disaster movie' nor a disaster
4 January 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This under-rated little film is a slow build story of relationships in all their real-life complexity.

The characters are (fairly) normal humans, geeky college friends who each went on their own path post-school, and are yanked back together when the world they grew into falls apart at the seams.

The lack of explosive on-screen destruction and explosive emotional confrontations may dismay viewers looking for a stereotypical disaster movie with all its CG-heavy scenery and OTT reality-show emoting.

But those deliberately understated elements are exactly how the tension builds and the human stories, with all their heartbreak and forced adaptation, are most strongly revealed.

The disaster is only the catalyst for the confrontations: with the friends' own natures and past secrets, with their most significant others, and with the shocked and disintegrating world of modern America as seen in and from their isolated rural arena.

If you're looking for a thinking person's examination of life after the internet goes down, check this one out.
