This is the location for a sci-fi flick. The world in the movie is set in an alternate universe, where a nuclear bomb has exploded, and mankind survives in a few isolated settlements. New York City is NOT one of them.
Our two gender-non-specific leads are outsiders, having been cast out from other isolated settlements in New England. They have come South to seek shelter and a new home in the devastated island of Manhattan, lying at the periphery of the continental United States.
They find each other and become travelling companions and lovers. They stumble onto Sutton Square, miraculously left intact after the Incident, but totally deserted. They are inspired by the age-old architecture to create a new settlement here, which they call Stonehenge 2058, after another ancient monument – the only monument they remember – and the year of the settlement’s founding.
Soon, other stragglers come along and are taken in by the pair. But their peaceful sojourn is short-lived as they are faced with marauding invaders from across the Atlantic, who have travelled far from the Old World to seek new lands to colonise and peoples to subjugate. This is the story of mankind’s resilience.
