All the preparation in the world can’t save her father from the inevitable cardiac arrest that follows when an E.M.P. disables his pacemaker. Alice is left alone in a barricaded farmhouse in the English countryside. But the ghost of her father lives on through the strict rules he gave her: trust no-one; never let anyone in the house; and never, ever, leave. All Alice has to do is follow these rules to the letter and she will survive but her resolve will be pushed to its limits when a wounded man knocks on her door…“
