The family of petrochemist Andy Yeats was preparing for an important event — Sam, the youngest child in the family, had to undergo eye surgery. The boy was born with a pathology, but thanks to the efforts of his parents, a team of scientists was able to get funding and invent a new way to restore the boy’s sight. But right before the trip to the operation, Andy had to urgently leave. How dangerous it is — none of his family members knew. Even Andy himself…
“Last Light ss 2”: release date, announcement
A sequel to the TV drama “Last Light” has not been announced, and Peacock presented Season 1 as a mini-series, with no plans to renew the project.
Andy was able to create a happy family. His wife Elena took care of the children and devoted a lot of time to their education. The eldest daughter Laura experienced teenage problems, but all this was fixable. Parents did not forbid the girl to attend events in support of the environment, and this was the only thing that really interested her.
Sam was fond of car racing and the boy was able to guess by touch the model of the collectible racing car that his parents gave him for his next birthday. Andy allowed the child to get behind the wheel and drive down an empty street, while Sam could drive on his own, and Andy was his “eyes”. Thus was arranged a small paradise belonging to the Yeats family.
After a successful evening, Andy was picked up by people who asked him to immediately drive to the oil laboratory. An incomprehensible thing is happening to oil — the combustion temperature is changing, which can provoke a catastrophe on a universal scale. Promising to be back by the day Sam is operated on, Andy leaves.
On the spot, it turns out that the situation is so serious that all oil production is closed. Deciding to work around the clock, Andy collects samples and never wastes a minute. Mika Bakhash is assigned to him. The woman will control his work and report the results of the activity to the masses. But on the way they are attacked by unknown people and a shootout begins.
At this time, Elena and Sam are in France, where they arrived in advance. Before the operation itself, there was a need to conduct medical tests, but the incredible began to happen throughout the city: all the patients began to be taken away, and Elena and Sam, who were separated for a short time, could hardly find each other.
When father, brother and mother were in different places, Laura had a great time at home. Like any teenager, the girl organized a party where a relationship began with a guy she likes. But a little later, when Laura was on the street, the unimaginable also began to happen: people were advancing from all sides, explosions occurred, and the police could not stop the onslaught of frightened residents. What happened? And how will a separated family manage to meet each other?..
