This is the story of what could have happened in a serious catastrophic nuclear disaster… if we had had enough time to prepare. Humanity is tucked away in an underground city called Ember, powered by a huge generator, with enough stored food to feed a small city for a few hundred years. A special locked case is prepared and sealed for 200 years, but something goes wrong, and the due date passes without notice. The people of Ember don’t know that something has gone wrong, and their supplies are running low.
Directed by Gil Kenan, screenplay by Caroline Thompson, based on the book by Jeanne Duprau.
Staring Lara McIvor as Roner, Matt Jessup as Joss, Bill Murry as the Mayor, and Tim Robbins as Joss’ dad.
