When unforeseen circumstances leave the country in ruins, a bitter ex-fashion model rises to power, only to find the two things she can't possess; beauty and love. 26-year-old Amber, who absconds from Manhattan when her age yields a devastating rejection from modeling. After she flees to a small town, the titular apocalypse occurs and destroys the country. Amber relies on her cunning and ingenuity to band the locals together and helps them collect supplies and ammunition and stockpile food, but suddenly the power goes to her head and threatens to spin severely out of control. Meanwhile, a friend slyly and viciously manipulates the people of the community through Amber; then a guard falls in love with one of the underlings and brings Amber's authority and control to an end. The film co-stars horror icon Gunnar Hansen (Leatherface in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre).
