London - the long, hard winter of 1973. As striking miners switch off the power across Britain, rolling electrical blackouts plunge the country into darkness. VAL, a young nurse on her first day of duty, is forced to work the night shift in a crumbling hospital.
When most of the patients and staff are evacuated to another hospital across town, Val finds herself in a near empty building, enveloped by a sinister darkness. Within these walls lies a deadly secret and a terrifying presence.
Now Val must face her own traumatic past and deepest fears to confront the malevolent force intent on destroying them all.
THE POWER is the debut feature by BAFTA-nominated writer-director Corinna Faith, and will be produced with the BFI Film Fund.
