Eve has been on the road for five long years. She’s worn down, injured, and haunted by ravens. She knows the beast is after her, after all the beast always comes for God’s chosen one. She feels it the way her namesake could feel the snake getting closer in Eden. It spurs her on, long past breaking point.
Adam knows he’s the last man alive on this planet. The Super Plague was a pestilence of biblical proportions and it did what God never could, it was the genocide of the homo-sapiens. Adam relishes our new world, marveling at the magnificence of the natural order being restored with no one left to ruin, plunder, or take from it. He holds out hope that he’ll find a woman, that maybe they can save mankind from extinction.
Amid the sun bleached skeletons, abandoned homes and cars, and endless vistas of our dystopia, the sole survivors find each other despite the odds. He can’t trust her, she’s not the Holy Mother for our revival. The only things standing between him and the ultimate freedom he craves is a superficial woman and her gun.
