It Just Stopped

It Just StoppedT406270755
Life is seductively comfortable for Franklin and Beth in their luxury 47th floor apartment. But what would happen and what might come in from outside world if everything just stopped? No electricity - so no computer, no coffee, no air-conditioning, no lift, no TV and the mobile isn't charged. At first its rather fun. But as time passes maybe this isn't just a temporary glitch. And there is work to do - an article to get to the New York Review of Books and a radio programme to transmit - and what is actually happening down there on the streets? It can be hard to see things clearly from the 47th floor. And then there is a knock on the door... What are our values and what will happen to them when the world faces cataclysmic change?
