“The Power is an emotionally-driven global thriller, based on Naomi Alderman’s international award-winning novel. The world of this series is our world, but for one twist of nature. Suddenly, and without warning, teenage girls develop the ability to electrocute people at will.
“It follows a cast of remarkable characters from London to Seattle, Nigeria to Eastern Europe, as this evolves from a tingle in teenagers’ collarbones to a complete reversal of the power balance of the world.”
The show is based on British author Naomi Alderman’s award-winning novel. It was published in 2016.
The authorities label this development as the next phase of evolution and a global revolution begins.
