An electromagnetic pulse has taken out the country's electrical supply. Shep, his father and sister must travel across the state to reunite their family.
Many theories emerged as to what happened. Some thought it was some form of terrorist attack. Others believed that aliens had destroyed our technology as a way to soften us up for an invasion. And some even believed that God had decided we needed to start over. The most common theory was that Earth was hit with some kind of electromagnetic pulse that completely fried everything electronic beyond repair. A theory which some were quick to point out was how they believed God had hit the restart button.
When it happened, a large portion of the population was immediately killed. Planes fell out of the sky, cars crashed, boats sank, hospital patients died, pacemakers failed… Some people never lost consciousness, some woke up almost immediately, and others went into comas that lasted for days. There were people that had their memories completely erased, and some were driven completely crazy. The worst were those who had their humanity completely stripped. They would kill for almost any reason.
This is a story of how a father and three teens worked against all odds to fight their way back home to reunite their family in the midst of a terrible tragedy.
