In a world that is increasingly dependent on electricity, a power outage seems like an awful predicament. Mankind is using electricity for the past 140 years, but still, we can't imagine ourselves living in a world deprived of electricity. With this in mind, after a lingering power outage, a father and his two daughters will find themselves trapped in a completely different reality; one that will change their lives forever. But is this outage regional, or does it affect the entire country? As these, and other, more crucial questions require an answer, no one can tell if the family has what it takes to survive, nonetheless, they still have no other choice but to put to the test their skills, adaptability and endurance, but above of all, challenge the integrity of their familial bonds.

Without getting into all of the other hot topics that this film
engenders, as an Alaskan I can say that from a purely survival aspect
they wouldn't make it a winter. And in fact if this was supposed to be
anywhere in Canada where was winter? It always seemed green. There are
few berries in winter. Unless they lived in a fairly substantial house
they would freeze to death. And there is very little food apart from
hunting in the winter. And they certainly did not learn enough to
survive simply from books. They would run out of ammo soon. They showed
no skill at creating tools or salvaging them. And certainly none at
basic house repair. In fact I would say they were just about the
unhandiest women I've seen in the woods. Essentially this was just an
emotionally acted fantasy without much basis in the real world. Kind of
a shame. I had hoped for more.
