It's been 66 days since the power went out and things are changing for those in the the Eden Mills neighborhood.  They have barricaded the neighborhood behind a wall and they are probably doing better than most.  But when you have a good thing, others are always trying to take it away.  They have been able to eliminate one major threat but they know that there are others out there who want to destroy them.  The neighborhood is being lead by Herb, an ex-spy, and they are lucky to have him.  Teenager Adam has proven his worth by piloting the ultralight that allows him to monitor the surrounding areas and look for danger.  A tent city has grown up around the walls that may mean danger as well.  Although Adam and his girlfriend Lori have befriended some of the people in the city.  There isn't enough food in Eden Mills to welcome any more residents.  But tensions are mounting.  What will our survivors face as the blackout continues and the food runs out?
