On an Earth destroyed after an alien invasion, two groups fight for survival. Humans, all former slaves who escaped from a prison only to find that the war with aliens ended 100 years ago (see The Outer Limits: The Camp (1997)) Meanwhile, some aliens have settled on the planet and taken up farming. The young son, Ma'al, likes to go into a destroyed city to roam around the ruins. The humans are starving and many of them begin eating the vegetation despite the warnings in the camp that all plant life had been poisoned. Reduced to just a few, the humans follow Ma'al to his home and when they become aware of each other's existence, centuries-old fears and prejudices come to the surface. Written by
