    • Synopsis
    • Struggling to survive amidst the barren wasteland of post-apocalyptic England, two young brothers are forced to start preying on nomadic wanderers. As the older brother, 20, tries to cling to their last slither of humanity, the younger, 16, can’t see the moral dilemma and relishes the chance to eat meat... until he meets the first girl he’s ever seen.

      Caught between his survival instincts, intrigue and desire, the girl’s presence brings out what remains of his humanity, and in turn, threatens his survival through starvation. But the girl, possibly the last alive, brings with her word of a remaining civilisation nearby heralding the answers to the apocalypse that wiped out the female race.

      For all the goodness this girl brings out of the younger brother, she also resurrects a darkness within the older who warns that the civilisation is no more, having been overrun and turned into a trap.

      When he eventually succumbs to nature’s strongest impulse he becomes a potent sexual threat that will stop at nothing to fulfill his desire.

      The girl and the younger brother are forced to take off in search of this last civilisation, but with the older brother in pursuit, trekking across dangerous, unknown territory, and with a potentially hellish destination ahead, the chances of survival are slim...
