In a post-apocalyptic world, only the men seem to have survived, and the strongest among them prevail. Among them is a doctor who resides in an abandoned sanitarium. When a self-declared healer and his son make a grab for power, things get disastrously out of hand. Is there any hope left? A man of small stature who wanders among the doomed is the only one who knows of a small island in a river, deep within the forest, where a woman and her child live in secret. Leonel Dietsche's first feature-length film is a gripping movie about end times.
