Witness a first-person view of a changed world.
A solitary survivor hides in a mountain above the city, living in a trailer with the door and windows duct-taped shut. Outside, a virulent disease has killed off most humans. Those who lived have become something else. Survival in this new world comes down to two, simple rules: stay quiet and protect the air. But one day, everything is threatened.
