Long SYNOPSIS

Deep in Louisiana’s swampland, a woman lives a quarantined life with her lover in what she believes is a post-apocalyptic world. He spends his days gas-masked, foraging for food. She spends hers frying non-perishable patties and painting her toenails.

After a small but pivotal moment wakes her from her trance, she becomes determined to leave after 16 years inside. Fearing something she’s no longer sure she believes in, she decides to face it anyway.
