The high-end, new-world dramaSky Original production tells the dystopian story of a ravaged world destroyed by a virus which kills adults but spares children.  Set amongst parched fields and mysterious forests, crumbling hulks of shopping malls and abandoned cities pierce deserted wide-open spaces on an island reclaimed by nature and run by savage communities of survivors, mostly children. "Anna" only has one guide: a book left by her mother with instructions on how to survive. But, with each passing day she discovers that the old rules no longer apply, and instead has to make up new ones as she goes along.
