After the vast majority of the world's population is wiped out by a super flu known as 'Captain Trips', the survivors left behind must learn to survive and thrive in a world beyond anything they could have once conceived.

Stu Redman is a kindhearted, blue collar man from Arnette, Texas. Frannie Goldsmith is an outgoing young woman from Ogunquit, Maine. Larry Underwood is a fame obsessed rock star hiding from debtors in New York City. Nick Andros is a down on his luck deaf mute man from Caslin, Nebraska. Glen Bateman is a retired academic from Woodsville, New Hampshire. Richard Farris is an elderly retired judge. All these people from varying backgrounds and places must learn to co-exist if society is to re-built.
