The year is 2033. The civilized world has been destroyed and the human race is almost extinct. Cities have been reduced to rubble and rendered uninhabitable by radiation. It is now 20 years since the catastrophe occurred and stewardship of the earth has already passed from man to new life-forms – creatures that have mutated in response to the radiation and are better adapted to the new world than humans. The age of man is at an end.
