Storyline

Everything that could go wrong did go wrong: War, Terrorism, Natural Disasters. Evacuees were ushered from the cities to refugee camps in the surrounding counties. In-fighting, famine and disease took their toll on the survivors. Now, twenty years after the bombs fell and the plagues ran their course the few that remain live in fear and without hope. Azura Skye stars as Sarah in this Post-Apocalyptic Fairy Tale about a young woman's journey to deliver the first child born in 15 Years. Sarah's refusal to give up is inspired by a lone voice on her radio. Michael broadcasts dim and distant messages of hope mixed with the music he scavenges from the dead. Forced from her basement home by drought and relentlessly pursued by those who want her baby, Sarah crosses paths with Michael in a cavernous, underground refuge of disparate survivors. It is from Three Caves that Michael and Sarah will embark on a journey beyond the boundaries of the Southern Corridor and into the unknown future. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

[first lines]
Michael: It is not enough to know that the world has ended. For there is more to the story. And soon it begins. Chaos drove us from the cities. Fear kept us away. Long after the bombs had fallen, after plagues and famine had run their course, we few that remain line in fear, and without hope. But this is a new place. A new time. Lost. Soon a time will come when we no longer live in caves. Like moles. Like rats.

Low Budget / Bad Story / Bad Acting / Terrible....
25 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am not against low budget films and when I caught a screening of this movie I was actually a little excited. The excitement quickly turned into agony as I forced myself to sit through it. The story was just plain boring, the acting was less then convincing and the effects were cheesy. There were parts that made no sense and didn't have anything to do with the story. I could see they tried to develop the characters but it was done so poorly and confusing that it just became a complete train wreck.

This reminded me of something that a High School drama club would have put together....
