Living in a world without electricity was something Ben had never once thought about especially since his parent’s divorce occupied his mind at the time. However, when PF (Power Failure) Day comes, the power grids are completely wiped out by an electromagnetic surge from the sun forcing everyone to realize just what it is like to live without electricity. Chaos erupts everywhere as Ben and his father try desperately to find ways to survive, but the limited supply of water and food in the city is diminishing quickly, causing people to take desperate measures. As winter approaches, Ben’s father unfortunately becomes ill with the flu and Ben decides he has to go out and find food alone. Unfortunately, while he is gone, a fire erupts in their apartment building taking his father away in a sea of ashes.
