100 years in the future after a super volcano destroys more than a third of the Earth’s population, the United States of America, once the strongest county in the world is now in the midst of rebuilding itself. Resources are running low due to a record high number of people not working because of birth defects caused by the volcano. At the center of it all is president Geneva Winters who is trying to pass a law forcing the disabled to take a serum that will cure them so they can get back to work. This causes the country to divide: those for and those against the serum.
