What have past acts of destruction taught us about what will happen to mankind after the apocalypse? Is it inevitable that disaster will someday strike America on an unprecedented level? How has history prepared us? History's most dramatic events--Hiroshima, 9/11, Hurricane Katrina and others--are examined and analyzed with hard data gathered from their massive aftereffects. The disappearance of water and food supplies, the effects of deteriorated sanitation and health care on the remaining population, and the increased use of violence as a means of survival--all illustrate how societies have responded and survived.

In this scenario, there was a pandemic illness that spread across the world and everything was shut off... electricity, water, empty shelves in the stores, etc.
However, it could be anything... an EMP or other.
First, they were in the dark and didn't know what it was. But then the teen's laptop went out and he was complaining.... As things progressed, they knew something was really wrong. They were burying their waste in the backyard at first because the toilets wouldn't flush.... They had storage, but it wasn't enough. They couldn't carry it.
Then the criminals were raiding homes and they had to leave. Cars were stalled on the freeway out of gas and they had to walk and also hide from the criminals. Very realistic.
What was even better was when there was a break occasionally and narration from people who explained what happens to people psychologically in this situation.
Recommend highly! However, review first before watching it with young children. There are scary scenes.
There is no political spin in this documentary. Very well done and put together. It will actually make you sit back and wonder. I highly recommend this documentary for everyone to watch.
