5 years ago, 2.6 billion people were killed in an event called the Extermination. A heinous government plan that was meant to lower the population in order to make food supplies last longer. An entire generation - from newborns to young adults - hunted down and slaughtered so the rest of Earths inhabitants could live. 

East, a survivor of the Extermination, now lives with others like him. Every day they fight for just a few more hours of life. A fate they all grew accustomed to. But when they discover a new survivor, the tide begins to turn in this losing battle.
