In an undefined future, the earth has been destroyed by man, and the air polluted with a mysterious virus that turns humans into zombies. Only a few children are immune to the disease and have adapted to these extreme conditions and survived. Camille, a nine year old girl wanders through these desolate wastelands, protecting herself from zombies and the armed military forces that roam the land killing anyone who might be infected. However, the little girl will find other kids like her that share a recurring dream of: they all have visions of the ocean as their destiny. Together they will try to survive the journey to the ocean in search of an escape from the military who seem to be as determined on their destruction as on the zombies. Written by

First off, let me say that I am a big horror movie fan, and an even bigger zombie genre fan. This movie tried to capitalize on the booming zombie genre, but it fell flat on its face in an epic way.
Picture yourself watching The Walking Dead TV series, Dawn of the Dead, Night of the Living Dead, and any other zombie powerhouses. Now, picture yourself watching a movie called "Descendents" where the director has the camera jumping around when there's absolutely nothing happening, children play on a playground for minutes on end with nothing happening, and the constant replay of the SAME scenes from the little girl's memory. There was a lot of wasted minutes with meaningless crap. The movie is purely and perfectly POINTLESS. Now, picture this pointless drivel of a plot-less movie ending on a monumentally STUPID ending that is second to none in stupidity. You think Full Metal Jacket seemed like a different movie half-way through it? Well, you ain't seen nothing yet until you experience the genius of this movie's ending. It isn't even worth renting (not even on a free rental you may get from your cable vendor). Don't waste your money or free time. This movie looks like it was made in one day.
Just so you're not fooled, this is no horror movie. It tries to blend social/political lines into an invisible plot mixed with an apocalyptic world. In case you still want to see it for yourself, I won't go any further, but, honestly, this movie isn't worth telling spoilers on. Why? Because it plain sucks. You've been warned.
