In the post-apocalyptic world of the movie City Limits, society has essentially collapsed due to a global catastrophe that has killed off the majority of the population and destroyed infrastructure. The few surviving humans are left to fend for themselves in a lawless, chaotic world that is dominated by gangs and neo-tribal factions who battle over resources and territory.

The film follows the story of a group of young adults who have banded together in a deserted part of the city to create a new settlement called "Oasis." The group is led by Lee (played by John Stockwell), a tough and resourceful young man who has managed to keep his followers alive and relatively safe despite the dangers of this new world.

As Oasis attracts more members, they eventually come into conflict with the local gangs who see the new settlement as a threat to their power. Oasis also becomes a target for a corrupt government bureaucracy that seeks to exploit the settlers for its own purposes.

Lee and his friends must fight to protect their new community while also trying to preserve their own humanity in a world that has turned brutal and unforgiving. Along the way, they meet other groups of survivors with their own stories and struggles.

One of these groups is led by a charismatic young woman named Toni (Rae Dawn Chong), who is searching for her lost brother while also trying to maintain her own group's independence and integrity. Another group is made up of mutated humans who have developed supernatural abilities due to the radiation left over from the catastrophe.

Together, the different groups must navigate the treacherous landscape of a world that has been forever changed by disaster. As they face off against rival factions, corrupt officials, and their own personal demons, they ultimately come to realize that their only hope for survival lies in cooperation and mutual support.

City Limits is a gritty and atmospheric film that offers a vivid and imaginative view of a post-apocalyptic world. Combining elements of action, adventure, and science fiction, the movie explores themes of survival, community, and the complexities of human nature in times of crisis. With a strong cast, sharp direction, and a compelling plot, City Limits is a standout entry in the genre of futuristic dystopian films.
