The specialty of the counterfactual is a dubious one, and it takes assorted types. In the event that you are Philip Roth, you furrow your profound fear into the idea of Franklin D. Roosevelt being crushed by Charles Lindbergh in the decision of 1940, and of Jewish residents being trashed as the adversary inside.
Such was the dull elective history thought up by Roth in “The Plot Against America,” his novel of 2004. In the event that you are Richard Curtis, the essayist of “Four Weddings and a Funeral” (1994) and “Notting Hill” (1999), you have rather various apprehensions.
The first is that individuals in adoration with each other probably won’t meet up as they should. The second and all the more unpleasant dread is that the Beatles may never have existed. That is to say, envision there’s no Ringo. It’s too terrible to even consider contemplating.

What is the story about?
One night, as Jack bicycles home to his folks (Sanjeev Bhaskar and Meera Syal), there is a worldwide power blackout. It keeps going an insignificant twelve seconds.
