Adapted from Naomi Alderman’s novel, The Power is about a group of teenage girls who mysteriously develop a special power that allows them to electrocute people at will.

Vancouver filming dates: July 25 2022 – September 24 2022.
Our era’s Handmaid’s Tale.
Suddenly, and without warning, all teenage girls in the world develop the power to electrocute people at will. And they learn they can awaken the Power in older women, too.
