Eric Scott Woods,
Wes Keller is a young man living in a world where oil has collapsed, the food supply has been wiped out, and cancer rates for women have skyrocketed, depleting the female population. In a barbaric environment where bio fuel, batteries, bullets and people are currency and marauders roam free, Wes tries to escape to a mythical world run on cold fusion "Plutopia", a place that may only exist in the mind. THE BILL IS DUE. 'Downstream' is a view of the not so distant future. We follow a young man (everyone's son) as he pays the price for society's decadence. Written by

I am assuming this is a low budget film, and it is pretty good compare to other low budget film. Good acting from all of the actors. Especially the end really surprise me, and I never expect that, and I really appreciate the guy who wrote it, at least it is real.
I used to watch a lot of TV from sci-fi TV channel while working, and most of them are crap amount other crap even with much higher budget. Most of the plots in this film make sense and doesn't seem to be stupid compare to other low budget film. I can even compare its storyline with resident evil film series and Fallout video game. Of course, just my opinion. I give this 9 out of 10. It doesn't have big action, but the atmosphere and the story really worth to watch if you like after end of world scene. And it is 10 times better than those "sex-and-the-city" and other crap.
Hope they make more of this kind of film, with small budget. The other with lots of explosion and gun fights with very boring and predictable films are just boring.
