Run away climate change has caused the world to become a baking hot, hellish environment decimating the human population. The few survivors are driven inland and to higher ground to seek relief from the heat and the floods. Michael is one of these refugees. We meet him leaving a town where he meets an old man living in a leanto shack. There they are attacked and driven onwards and upwards.
