Andy (45) knows how dependent the world is on oil. He is the only one who understands the devastating impact a shortage of “black gold” would have on our societies. It would set off a chain reaction: transportation would grind to a halt, supplies would cease to be delivered, law enforcement would be overwhelmed. Andy has tried to alert the people around him, but nobody takes him seriously, not even his wife ELISABETH (45), and his children LAURA (19) and QUENTIN (8). Andy, who is on a business trip to the Middle East, understands that his worst fears are coming true. Several terrorist attacks have prevented oil from reaching Europe. He immediately calls his family. If they listen to him and do exactly as he tells them, they will have a 36-hour lead on the rest of the population. 36 hours which could save their lives. The members of the Nielsen family, though sceptical at first, have to face facts. Andy was telling the truth, society is quickly sinking into chaos. In the desert, Andy has only one goal: getting home to find his family! He’ll have to rise to the occasion and become a hero if he is to make it onto the last plane back to Europe. Elisabeth, who was supposed to be in England, is actually in Paris with her lover. She does everything she can to reach the English capital and her children. But without transportation, the journey is far more complicated than it seems. She’ll have to follow the path of current-day migrants. Laura and Quentin have always known how to react to such a situation. Today, left to their own devices, they try to take advantage of this lead to get out of the city before it decays into lawlessness. Their goal is to find safety in the countryside. But little do they know that ASHBURY, a hired killer disguised as a bobby, is hot on their trail for a reason that escapes them. Amid this chaos, each family member will sacrifice everything to find one another, despite the distance and the dangers that separate them.
