In the end we are as uncivilized as every other animal. We’re just better at putting on a human suit.
Jannik Tai Mosholt, Creator
The world as we know it has ended. Six years after a brutal virus wiped out almost all humans in Scandinavia, two siblings join a group of young survivors set out to find out whether a new world has begun somewhere else.
They all hope that the siblings’ father is somewhere out there with answers. Set free from the rules of civilized society, each of the young members of the group has the freedom to be who they want to be.
But they all struggle with their own selves, and the fact that even in a post-apocalyptic world there’s love, jealousy, coming of age, and every problem they thought they’d left behind with the disappearance of the world as they knew it.
