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.

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.
