Thirteen-year-old Vesper (Raffiella Chapman) lives on an Earth in which the ecosystem has totally collapsed. Inhabiting a dilapidated old shack with her bedridden father (Richard Brake) – who can communicate through a drone which follows his daughter around – Vesper forages for food in the unwelcoming forest whilst also experimenting in her lab. When she discovers a crashed ship from the Citadel – a fortress for the “great and good” of society – she finds the unconscious body of Camellia (Rosy McEwen). Nursing her back to health, she hopes that this mysterious stranger will help them out of their situation and allow them to enter the utopia of the Citadel. But when neighbour Jonas (Eddie Marsan) appears with his own nefarious plans, Vesper must find a way to reverse apocalypse.
