Ian, a scientist who predicted the end of the world before it came about, gave Molly implants—including razors underneath her fingernails—to help her find her way to him when the time was right. Upon leaving the shelter, she sets off, and runs into a group of fellow human survivors, including her high school sweetheart, Chase Griffith. Chase still hasn’t forgiven Molly for not fleeing to the mountains with him and his friends six years ago, but he realizes accompanying her to see her father might be his group’s only hope for a future.
