The Tribe is a dramatic television series with a science fiction edge. It tells the story of a futuristic world in which all of the adults have been killed off by a brutal plague. The children and teenagers of the world are now left to fend for themselves. The young people all band together in various tribes in order to be able to survive in this brand new world.

The main focus of the series is a tribe called The Mall Rats. The group is called the Mall Rats because they have taken refuge in an abandoned mall. There is a lot of violence and disorder in the world after the adults have passed and the Mall Rats find the mall to be a safe place.

Lex and Ryan are two bullies who attack the tribe repeatedly. After failing to get rid of them the Mall Rats decide to offer them a place to stay in the mall and access to the mall's food court. Lex and Ryan agree to use their strength to protect the Mall Rats and not attack them.

Although the Mall Rats have the physical comfort of the mall to hide in, they still need to work on some aspects. There is no water or food so the group bands together to invent a water filtration system. They also need to invent an alarm system for the mall to make sure bad people do not penetrate it.

The goal of the Mall Rats is to try and fix the city and get everyone living in peace and harmony again. They face many obstacles in trying to get this goal done including the murder of some of their group members. The Technos are a rival gang to the Mall Rats and they have better weapons and technology. The members must fight continuously in hopes of creating a better world in the future.
