The series is set in Glendale, California. The story is centered around a high school football star named Josh Wheeler, played by Colin Ford, who is on a quest to find his girlfriend, Samaira Dean, played by Sofia Vassilieva, after the nuclear apocalypse. Along the way, he bands together with a group of other teenage survivors, including a 10-year-old pyromaniac named Angelica Green, portrayed by Alyvia Alyn Lind, and a popular girl named Sam Dean's younger sister, who has a thirst for vengeance for her sister's rejection. The group navigates life in the apocalypse, which is now overrun by gangs, zombies, and evil mutants.
