Synopsis: In summer 2003, America experienced the largest blackout in its history—widely reported as peaceful. But in Brooklyn's forgotten East Flatbush neighborhood, mayhem unfolded when the power shut down. This is the untold story of the blackout—a place where, as night fell, looters emerged, violence surfaced and residents feared for their lives. Jeffrey Wright plays "Nelson" the owner and pillar of the local barbershop. Zoe Saldana plays "Claudine" an ambitious writer for "uptown" magazine.
