What is The Power on Prime Video about?

The British science fiction drama is an “emotionally-driven” story that is set in the world we know, per the synopsis. The one catch? All of a sudden one day, teenage girls develop the power to electrocute people “at will.” This happens all over the world – from London to Seattle, Nigeria to Eastern Europe, and more. It may start out as a small ability, but it soon grows into much more that reverses the “power balance of the world,” the streamer shares.
