People in this small community, one day saw a huge atomic explosion in Denver. Not knowing what is going on and out of electricity they take shelter trying to survive a storm that might bring radiation on the town. After the storm passes the town is trying to make sense of it all. Is it a terrorist attack? are we at war? is the ex-cop from Louisiana is really who he says he is?
The premise is that in contemporary times, a terrorist plot to explode numerous nuclear weapons in large American cities succeeds, and why are they doing it? The know that there were an other explosion in Atlanta thanks to a message on an answering machine. Without the power grid and satellite communications, all means of finding out what happened are lost and the people of the small community find firsthand what it is like to see the after effects of the situation. Assisting others and hording foodstuffs while hoping for the federal government to save the day. Still afraid that the town might be radio-active they are trying to make do with what they have. They are still trying to find out if the live stock is still alive and if the land still can be cultivated. There are some criminal activity going on. And the ex-cop of St. Louis what is he up too? There is a sense of mystery here going on and the suspense will be flowing through your veins and look out for a bit a tension that won’t let go. unfortunately this series has done only 2 seasons and that is a shame because I wanted more. It is well thought out as well as written. It is on Netflix streaming in Europe.
