Story
Ember is a city built to last 200 years. The builders of Ember left instructions to the mayors in a box that would open by itself. Unfortunately, one of the mayors was corrupt and tossed the box into a closet, where it was forgotten for centuries.

The year is 241. Lina Mayfleet, and Doon Harrow are two children in Ember who find themselves on a mission to save their dying city. The city's lights are beginning to flicker and food supplies are running out.

Doon lands a job at the Pipeworks where he wants to try to repair the failing generator. Lina's job is simple - she is a messenger, but she soon finds herself in over her head when she discovers the box of instructions left by the builders so long ago.

Doon and she find themselves on a wild adventure when they discover the way out of Ember, but corrupt officials and a treacherous mayor stand against their wish to save the city. With courage and heart they brave the darkness - all to help their fellow citizens escape the dying city and lead them to another world.
