Four new battles for survival, from the world of Terry Nation's cult-classic series with eerily engrossing sound design and a brand new, cinematic musical score.
The world has ended. The `Death' pandemic crossed continents, sparing only a fraction of the global population. The survivors are now trying to pick up the pieces and rebuild society - to create a new future. But with no cities, no laws, no technology, everyone must start over. And the worst of human nature has survived along with the best.
These are the true-life accounts of nine Jewish boys and girls whose lives spiraled into danger and fear as the Holocaust overtook Europe. In a time of great horror, these children each found a way to make it through the nightmare of war. Some made daring escapes into the unknown, others disguised their true identities, and many witnessed unimaginable horrors. But what they all shared was the unshakable belief in-- and hope for-- survival. Their legacy of courage in the face of hatred will move you, captivate you, and, ultimately, inspire you.
It begins with just a few people falling ill. Another flu virus that spreads around the globe. And then the reports begin that people are dying... When most of the world's population is wiped out, a handful of survivors are left to pick up the pieces.
A deadly virus spreads across the world as quickly as the passenger jets that encircle it. Within weeks, most of the global population is dead. The human race is thrown back into the dark ages. The few left alive must rely on the most basic skills to survive one day to the next.
