In a post-apocalyptic environment, one of the world's largest cities undergoes an indefinite power outage. Chaos appears within a few days. Systematically, the authorities and the leaders have left. A new order is established in a city that is almost impossible to leave, surrounded by miles of what are now lost cities and belts of misery where no one leaves alive. A high-middle-class architect struggles to survive in this environment while, gradually, he must degrade himself and appeal to his instincts to get ahead and find his wife, who has decided to leave.
