The story focuses on a world where teenager girls develop the ability to release electrical jolts from their fingers, which leads to them becoming the dominant gender. 

Bawdsey is set to take the place of Toronto where filming was due to take place last year before the pandemic. 

A large convent has been built in a field just on the outskirts of the village.
