When a widespread series of explosions brings society crashing down around them, James and Charlotte are initially left with only one another as they struggle to survive. 

As the modern world collapses, people driven by starvation and panic, as well as those with evil intentions, prove to be more of a threat than the explosions themselves. With unrest growing in the metropolitan city of Langford, and with the situation becoming too dangerous for even the police and military, these two strangers make a pact to look out for one another as they flee for their lives. 

Along the way they stumble upon survivors waiting to be saved. When James and Charlotte share their plans to head into the woods where they will live off the land and attempt to escape the chaos of the outside world, this unlikely group decides to leave civilization behind and work together for the good of the whole. 

This group of survivors is woefully unprepared for what life becomes after the Fall, where the simplest mistake can mean mortal danger. In this new reality, they must contend with both the perils of the natural world and the threat of dangerous men who use the collapse of society to prey on those weaker than themselves. Sanity and morality are under constant threat as this group struggles to survive, each of them facing life-changing physical and emotional battles. 

Will this group of strangers, bonded by tragedy, have what it takes to survive a world that has fallen around them?
