Set in the near future, this riveting apocalyptic drama follows two sisters whose heretoforth fairly peaceful lives are disrupted by a world-wide power outage. The sisters (in the NorthWest) must work together in order to survive, and their world becomes increasingly treacherous. Their father dies suddenly and they are left alone some miles from the nearest town with only enough gas to get there for an emergency. All transportation, internet, electricity, gas and deliveries are stopped. One of the sisters is raped by a neighbor and they have to birth and care of the baby.

When they return to their house after the birth of the baby in a hut nearby, the house is full of black mold and one of the sisters suggests burning it down, so they do. One sister mentions the length of time that we have had electricity vs. the time humans have been on earth. That is the end and we never find out how they survive in this apocalyptic drama. Which is my only criticism of the film.
