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.
Run away climate change has caused the world to become a baking hot, hellish environment decimating the human population. Seas have engulfed thousands of coastal towns. 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 to move across an arid plain where he meets an old man living in a small farm in a leanto shack. There they are attacked by hunger and primitive men and animals and driven onwards and upwards - the old man seeking a history of our past before he dies.Meantime a young aristocratic female suffers estrangement, alienation and angst until she is finally driven from a high-tech, futuristic city - one of the few which the privileged have built and in which they taken refuge against a catastrophe they have caused.They come together and join with two other companions from more primitive backgrounds. But they are all five to meet with one more human fugitive.
