Synopsis: 

Decades after the apocalypse leaves the world in permanent nuclear winter, The Kid roams the wasteland scavenging for comic books and ‘80s paraphernalia. He trades knick-knacks at a trading post for fresh water, the most valuable commodity in this land soaked by toxic rain. His routine existence is disrupted when he meets Apple. Just as Apple starts to bring The Kid out of his isolated world, she’s kidnapped. Armed with only blind faith and an ancient turbocharged weapon, The Kid must embark on a journey to rid the Wasteland of evil and save the girl of his dreams.
