Eight years ago, Rick Grimes was shot and sent into a coma. While he was in the coma, the walking dead began to take over the world. Months into the end, Rick woke up, with only one goal in mind. Find his son, Carl. For years Rick passed through several camps, never finding his son, but never losing hope. As time goes on, Rick starts to give up, he hadn't seen his son in eight years, there was a good chance he didn't look anything like he used to. But right when Rick is ready to finally give up, he gets taken hostage by a teenage boy, who takes him to a place called the Sanctuary. What feels like the end for Rick, was really only the beginning.
