The Power is an upcoming fiction film centered around the lives of teenage girls in the world who inexplicably acquire the ability to electrocute people at any moment. In reality, the series explores the emotions and actions of wronged women and what their lives would be like if they could exact justice on anyone on their terms. What’s more, these teenage girls also carry the ability to awaken the power in older women. This is a compelling premise where women have all the power and a question of what the world would be like if they held all the power instead of men.
The Power Season 1 Storyline: What is it all about?
Since the showrunners are playing their cards close to the vest, we know what we get from the book and the synopsis. Teenage women worldwide are suddenly able to produce electricity from their fingertips and direct it to whatever and whomever they want. They can use this power to shock or kill, and the power cannot be taken away from them. These teenagers are faced with a host of personal and moral choices regarding how they will use their control, and it becomes clear that men will become the primary victims. Things get even more interesting when it is discovered that teenage girls can awaken this ability in older women.
