At the end of the world a teenage couple, a Cutter and a Co-dependent, seek refuge in a backyard fallout shelter. Their solitary internment warps time, their perception and their relationship as they struggle to adapt to a world that is both dying and ignoring them. As the apocalypse rages and the world crumbles around them, the young couple discovers that survival isn’t what you escape, but what you bring with you.
