In a world gone mad, one ordinary, suburban family must find a way to survive. But each member of the Sharpe family must struggle in their own way.

The father: is an ex-marine and, for him, survival means protecting his family by any means necessary.

The mother: is learning just how much she will sacrifice for her children.

The daughter: was going to go to college. Now, her only hope is to hold on to what's right.

The son: is discovering a brave new world - a world with only one choice to make: kill or be killed.

When survival is on the line, what wouldn't you do for your family?
