AFTERMATH 2

This is more than the story of nuclear war. It's about the devastating aftermath wrought when the bombs stop dropping. The possible future of humanity is seen through the eyes of the Bartlett family, Maine lobstermen whose roots stretch back to the early settlement of Maine.

 

Some are at sea. Another is off the island they call home. And the youngest, a newlywed is tucked away in a place of perceived safety in the heart of Europe.

 

While they fight for survival, they must trek across a rapidly deteriorating landscape fraught with danger from both the elements and their fellow man.

AFTERMATH 3

Nobody was prepared, including the world’s governments. The damage to humanity through loss of life was predictable, yet unfathomable. As nuclear winter spread across the globe, a rapidly cooling climate shocked humanity to their death.

 

In a world without power, the exchange of information was virtually non-existent. A battle for resources was waged, pitting friend against friend and friend against foe.

For the Bartlett family, their days on Swan’s Island were untenable. They had the means to move on but were waiting for family thousands of miles away to return home.

 

While the family held out hope for their loved ones to return, they were forced to hold their ground against those who’d threaten their very existence. For, in the aftermath of Nuclear Armageddon, the desperate become dangerous. The docile become deadly. The moral among us become murderers.

AFTERMATH 4

Nuclear fallout wrapped the planet in a blanket of soot, blocking the sun's rays, wreaking havoc on the atmosphere. The planet was plunged into a deep chill that would last for years. Plants withered. Animals died. Famine exacted its toll on the human population. From the initial firestorm and the spread of smoke to the destruction of the Earth's ecosystem.

 

Yet, there was a place to survive, but the journey was filled with perils and the last port of call may not be as welcoming as the Bartlett family hoped.
