AFTER A BLOODY CIVIL WAR,
A REMNANT OF SURVIVORS WORK TO TAKE BACK THEIR NATION.
In the future, a bloody Civil War has torn apart what was once The United States. Now under the control of "The Union", martial law is enacted across the region and the world. Union forces have seized control of utilities, communications, law enforcement, the military and agriculture.
All citizens must swear allegiance to the Union, receive a tracking chip and surrender their weapons to live in this new society.
Those who defy the new rule of law are considered terrorists to Union Forces and exterminated for the betterment of society. As the Union gains control over the east and west coast, "Defenders" organize in sanctuary states throughout the midwest.
Families flee their homes, leaving everything behind to seek the freedom they once knew. We follow their plight as they try to escape from surrendered cities on the coast and make their way to sanctuary states.
the BATTLE FOR CONTROL
What ensues is an epic drama of families, friends and a society of divided allegiance adapting to the most polarizing event in modern history.
