Inspired by actual events, in the summer of 2003 a massive power outage sets off a chain reaction of frustration, violence and despair in an inner city neighborhood. Looters emerge, violence breaks out and residents fear for their lives as they wait for help that never comes. Some will find each other in the darkness, others will lose everything they have ever worked for and East Flatbush will never forget the events of these two days.
