In a world devastated by a catastrophic nuclear event, a single idyllic valley remains spared from the radioactive fallout. Here, a solitary figure, Ann Burden (Margot Robbie), thrives on the farm she once shared with her family, bolstered by her wits, hard work and indomitable faith. Living on her own for some time, her fears that she may be the event’s only survivor prove unfounded when she encounters John Loomis (Chiwetel Ejiofor), a pragmatic scientist, turned refugee, searching for a safe haven. Forming a delicate if powerful bond, their budding relationship – and with it, the tenuous promise of a better life – begins to unravel when a stranger, the former mine worker, Caleb (Chris Pine), enters their world.
