This is the story of a woman, Ann, surviving alone in the woods after a virus has ravaged mankind. We first see her covered in muck, as if she went out on a hunt, and then her two different campgrounds, one by a lake and the other next to her parked car. She uses the car for getting out of the rain and sleeping at night. A lot of her time is spent trying to find food, from setting up a cooler to trap a squirrel to picking berries and grubs. In flashbacks we find out that she's there because her husband used to go there as a kid and felt safe in the woods-and that they had an infant who contracted the disease. Desperate for more food she ventures to a nearby house where there are people affected by the virus. Eventually she encounters other regular humans-a guy and his stepdaughter who are passing through. He's injured, so they end up staying at her camp for a while, long enough for them to become attached. This is complicated by the fact that the step-daughter is in love with him and he's clearly interested in Ann. He wants Ann to travel with them when they leave but she's reluctant, which has something to do about her guilt over how her baby died.
This is one of the better "End of the World" movies to come along in a while. My only gripe is that they constantly seem to be hungry but they are camped in the middle of a forest by a lake. Just watching the movie I could see a great deal of edible plants. I'd love to see a movie like this where there was too much food and too many resources-which there should be if 90% of people are killed off. Regardless, you should check this out. It's sort of a zombie movie, with the zombies rabid people as in 28 DAYS LATER, though much more of a character study. Recommended.
