"This is the USS Fort Worth at Coast Guard Station Galveston. We have room for 41 survivors. We will update the count as we accept new passengers. Message repeats."
In 2037, a father and daughter travel from Dallas to Galveston in hope of rescue. Driven by a shortwave radio message, they risk their lives to steal bicycles and brave the 300 mile journey down a highway littered with abandoned cars and stalked by murderous gangs. They have nothing but an empty gun, a bag of boiled tree nuts, and each other.
