    • Synopsis
    • In a post-apocalyptic future, CHARLIE, the mercurial leader of a teenage gang of bandits, and his closest friends have carved out a home for themselves in the Mojave desert. As supplies begin to dwindle, Charlie has done his best to keep the group civil. But, during a routine morning patrol, they encounter the stranded travelers that may be the answer to their problems; BENNY, the redneck leader a Neo Nazi militia, his pregnant wife, and their muscle. Seeing an opportunity to get everything they need, Charlie takes the three travelers hostage with the hopes of getting the supplies they must have to survive the harsh terrain.

      When they arrive back at Red Rock Mountain, the outpost Charlie and his gang have made for themselves, JO, Charlie’s girlfriend, attacks the boys for being so irrational, presenting the
      logistics of actually taking hostages when they are barely surviving themselves. Charlie refuses to hear it however, instead demanding that Benny turn over half the food, water, and arms he believes the militia harbors at their compound. Benny finally agrees on the condition he and his wife be returned unscathed. But on a scope out of the small property they are ambushed and MAX, one of Charlie’s best friends, is killed. Blaming Benny, Charlie takes his revenge out on one of Benny’s companions (the muscle), mortally wounding him and further increasing the need for supplies Benny has back at his camp. Benny agrees, and the next day he is dropped off at the compound under the condition they will drop off water, food & guns in exchange for Benny’s wife and the muscle. When Charlie and gang show up to collect, however, nobody is in sight. They return home unaware their every move is being tracked. As the young gang weighs their options, they are interrupted by gunfire as Benny and the Militia have launched an all out offensive. A standoff ensues, leaving Charlie and another boy dead and Leanne, the only leverage the teens have, gone. All seems lost, until Jo rallies the teenage bandits for one final raid to take back what is rightfully theirs and get their retribution. When the world has ended, what other choice do they have?
