Storyline

People drop dead at the dinner table. Pilots collapse mid-flight, and planes fall suddenly out of the sky. In sixteen days, the human race is all but extinct. On a newly silent continent, where the cities stand empty but the shelves are still stocked, a sixteen-year-old girl comes of age. Led by cloudy telepathic communications, Astraea pushes her half-brother Matthew to undertake a five thousand mile journey to Nova Scotia, Canada, in hopes of rescuing her eight-year old brother. They bed-down in abandoned homes, plunder stores, and move through the lonely, hushed world with an unthinking devotion to forward movement and an unlikely hope of finding survivors. In the snowbound forests of Maine, Astraea's clairvoyant visions intensify, and they press urgently northward. But then they come across James and Callie, a couple who have managed to build a life on a frozen lakeshore.

Trivia

When asked about the inspiration for the film, Director Kristjan Thor noted a "really strong passion for the conceptual blend of a teenage coming of age story, but set against the backdrop of the apocalypse. The film takes place in an empty world, where Astraea's peer group is totally unique and very intimate, and she as a character is developing these odd, visionary abilities... you can also view it as something of a metaphor for the experience of being a teenager in general."

A strange thing happened while I watched this movie... I began to listen to my hair grow...this stupid movie had nothing to say but said it anyway... and this film proved that you'll find boredom anywhere there is an absence of a good idea...
