Russell finally accepts that he has escaped the purging of humanity from the city. He hunkers down in an abandoned house in a suburb far from the city’s center. In the mess left behind, managing for his day-to-day needs occupies every waking hour. When he accidentally encounters someone else doing the same, he sets out to discover who it is that is trapped in a situation not dissimilar to his own.
The world he’s known may be no more, but Russell has a plan, and so far, he’s very happy with it. He has a roof over his head. He’s got the goods. He’s got the girl. His plan appears to be working. Then a wrench and a stranger are thrown into the mix, and it’s anybody’s guess as to who will eventually win to save the day and the relationship in a new and unforgiving land.
