The seven member cast and crew of Tiffany McMillan’s cooking show are stranded on a farm when a solar flare hits. The preppers, led by Bubba and Carol, have been monitoring solar activity. Several intersecting stories have the cooking show or Tiffany's cookbook in common, from Holly the perfectionist vegan, to Briana the prepper girl. A home-school co-op is a parallel scene in a rural area where they are used to power failures. And Skylar, the set designer for the Tiffany's show, is at a hotel in town when suddenly … they are all left in the dark.
