What is the plot of The Last Bus?

The synopsis of The Last Bus has been provided by Netflix:

A group of school students travel to the launch of the Genie Orbs – a new class of robot designed to clear up the environment. The students are understandably stoked. As one of them says “after today’s trip the world may never be the same again”. How right he is but just not in the way he expects.

As soon as the miraculous AI-powered Genie Orbs are introduced by tech billionaire Dalton Monkhouse, they begin to apparently vaporize everyone in the audience and not just this audience – but audiences at hundreds of thousands of identical events all over the world…

A mismatched assortment of students just manages to make it back through the carnage to their rackety old school bus and head home in search of answers, only to be met by a mysteriously empty world.
