Plot Synopsis:

The year is anywhere between 2015 and 2040. In a post-apocalyptic world devastated by global climate change, collapsing economies, and dwindling food supplies, civilization as we know it is no more. The US and several Western European countries are no longer considered “first world” countries, and only the few mostly stable countries like China, remain to rise up and take what remains of that role.

In the US, isolated pockets of prosperity do exist, jealously guarded, but a vast majority of people live a hand to mouth scrabbling sort of existence, either as nomadic sorts of wanders, very poor sub-sets within dying cities, or in isolated communities.

In this world we meet a small cast of characters. Brought together by the rumor of a prosperous, open community of survivors, "The City." (ie the whole Utopia sort of myth) they band together to make their way to this promised land of hope.

Cast:

There's the ex-FBI agent and his young daughter:
Johnathan Marshal (played by Colin Ferguson) and Cassandra “Cassie” Marshal (played by Joey King)





Johnathan's Theme


Johnathan is one of the few voices of hope left in this world. He still wants to believe that things will work out and that any person can change the world for the better if he or she only tries. He is devoted to his daughter and wants, more than anything, to give her a better life.



Cassie's Theme


Cassie is very much like her father, wanting to believe in hope and the goodness of people. She is a bright girl, joyful and and full of life. She faces each hardship on their journey with a will and a seemingly boundless sense of determination.


The Doctor and her young son:
Elizabeth Carter (played by Salli Richardson – Whitfield) and Jaden Carter (played by Jaden Smith)





Elizabeth's Theme


Elizabeth is a practical woman with a hidden streak of romanticism and idealism. A dedicated healer, she has devoted her life to medicine, science, and helping people. The only thing she cares more about than medicine, is her son, and she would gladly lay down her life or do anything in her power to see him safe and happy.



Jaden's Theme


Jaden is an intelligent boy, sometimes too smart for his own good. And while he loves his mother, he sometimes finds her protectiveness stifling. Jaden has just reached that difficult age between childhood and young adulthood, making a troubling and difficult journey, even more so. But with strength and perseverance, he is every bit as determined to reach journey's end as his mother.

Cast Continued:

The “New Age” artist/healer
Angela Bergman (played by Lauren Graham)



Angela's Theme


Angela is a free spirit who once worked and lived in Sedona making her living as an artist and a healer. She falls in with the group when a gravely wounded ex-marine and a teenage boy unexpectedly stumble through her gallery door. After helping them to recover, she invites herself to tag along with them in the firm belief that she can help them reach The City.


The ex-marine
Charles Addams (played by Adam Baldwin)



The Colonel's Theme


Charles, a former Special Forces marine is a disillusioned and broken sort of man, who nonetheless, could never abandon his code or his country, even though it looks like they abandoned him. Career military, from a military family, duty and devotion runs deep in this man. So even when corruption in the US military drove him from their ranks, Charles found himself serving his country and her people however he could. It was in doing so, that he found himself injured and near death, having been shot while attempting to defend a small group of travelers headed toward the City. Only he and Alexander, a teenage boy from the group survived. Now he finds himself bound by duty and his promise to the boy's deceased parents, to see to it that he arrives there safely.



Love Unspoken - Charles and Angela's Theme


The Teenage Edenist
Alexander Blackstone (played by Taylor Lautner)



Alexander's Theme


A member of the Edenists, Alex was left an orphan when the group was attacked and killed for their supplies. It left him understandably scared and bitter, and he has begun to reject their teachings, including the use of non-violence as a means of survival and change, and their belief in the City. He accompanies Colonel Addams only reluctantly.

Cast Continued:

The former university anthropology professor
Ulysses Rand (played by Joe Morton)



The Professor's Theme


Professor Rand has been fascinated by the Edenist movement since its beginning, but it was only recently that he has found one of their “sacred maps.” More than just metaphor, he, like the movement itself, believes that the City may indeed be a real place. It is as much for intellectual curiosity, as survival that he sets out to find it.


The wildlife biologist/conservationist
Julie Whitman (played by Elizabeth Mitchell)



Julie's Theme


Horrified by the global destruction Julie has seen all around her, she has been fighting for the environment and the conservation of it for as long as she could remember. The daughter of conservationists and biologists, she has been involved in the green movement for her whole life. She has heard that the inhabitants of the City have learned to live with the environment and have developed several technologies meant to combat ecological destruction. It is Julie's hope that she can find the City and bring its knowledge back.
