It’s been eight years since the lights turned off and never came back. Since everyone left the cities and were on their own to survive. Ellie’s been extra alone ever since dad died, but she never forgot the rules to the Game. The Game they played to stay alive. That is until one day she meets a gawky yet charming guy named Desmond. From there it’s all cute romance, short skirts and kickass shootouts. What’s waiting for you is quaint everyday slice of life post-apocalyptic landscapes with heaping mounds of irresistible sentimentality plus the kind of violence you weren’t allowed to see as a kid. Some real shock shlock You’ve been warned. You’ll love it.
