A father navigates a post-invasion apocalypse ruled by armed gangs, trying to keep his daughter safe while searching for his wife and son.
A mysterious alien race invades, intending to genetically castrate humanity’s capacity to wage war and threaten their empire, and society collapses as they demolish any attempt at organization.
The story opens a year after the invasion with James, a man without a purpose, scavenging a meager existence for himself and his neglected adolescent daughter and clinging to his house as his only remaining connection to his missing wife and son.
His routine is broken when a roving militant gang kills his friend, forcing a violent confrontation where James realizes how far gone his old life is. He rescues a woman from the gangsters and kills several of them in a gunfight, but one escapes, exacting his revenge by kidnapping James’ daughter.
The gangsters return and burn down James’ house, forcing him to team up with the woman to infiltrate the gangsters’ camp, situated in an abandoned mall.
