SYNOPSIS: In this epic adventure thriller, a family struggles to survive in a post-apocalyptic American landscape: a world of overgrown cities, treacherous militias and heroic freedom fighters, fifteen years after every single piece of technology – computers, planes, cars, phones, even lights – had suddenly blacked out ... forever. A swashbuckling journey of hope and rebirth, Revolution is seen through the eyes of a strong-willed young woman, Charlie Matheson, who has lost members of her family in the blackout's tragic aftermath, but has gained a new family and a new purpose. Together, with a rogue band of survivors – including her secretive mother Rachel and formerly estranged uncle Miles, an ex-marine and militia leader – she sets out to overthrow the dangerous Monroe Militia (led by the volatile Sebastian Monroe), restore the power - and balance of power - and ultimately re-establish the United States of America.
