Melbourne. End of the world. Daria and Abby survived the end of the world, but may not survive the insane bureaucracy of their home at the top of a dam, New Town. The Council value upholding petty rules at the expense of common sense. Daria and Abby break those rules as due dates for expectant mothers get closer. They must scavenge the abandoned city for supplies, avoiding escaped zoo animals and hungry dogs. But, are they really alone? A post-apocalypse dark comedy about friendship, family and feuds. This is the first episode of the series and is 14,000 words long. Here is the opening line: The vines choked street lights, the skeletons like litter after a festival. Daria peered up through the windshield and slowed the car to a crawl.
