Mark Van Der Poole, his wife, and two teenagers all understand what being “connected” is all about : Twitter, Facebook, Cell Phones, iPads, GPS – their frantic lives are bound to gadgets too numerous to count!

This noisy backdrop turns suddenly into awkward silence when a mysterious glitch brings the entire communications grid to a sudden halt!

Sudden withdrawal from gadget-driven addictions force the Van Der Poole family together against their will, to face the best – and worst – in each other as they explore old fashioned fun, family, and faith.
