Go North

Synopsis: A few years from now, something will happen that will change our world. A global event that causes pandemonium, chaos, and death. Life as we know it will never be the same. Left behind are abandoned buildings, empty streets, and other painful reminders of a better yesterday. Not a single adult remains, all victims of this global catastrophe. The only survivors are teenagers and children, living on the streets in the hollowed out shell of a once great city. This is their world now. They make their own rules and enforce their own laws. Some are merely trying to survive, while others rule by force.

Don't ask me what happened,

because I don't have

all the answers.

There is no one here to tell us.

I can put bits

and pieces together,

but it won't add up to much.

Why can't I remember?

May be it's better I don't.

Same path as yesterday,

and the day before,

and the day before that.

It's me walking,

but it's like

I'm not really there.

The real me is somewhere else.

Somewhere better.



Damn. You look even uglier

than you did yesterday.

Yeah? Well,

you sound like a hillbilly.

Hey, I got something for you.

I know you like

that kind of stuff.

Thanks, man.

What does it say?

I never made it to cursive.

How far have you gone?




All right, everyone.

Take your seats.

Class is starting.

Oh, here comes tough dude

how about you shut up?

Sit down!

No more fucking around.


Teach said shut the f*ck up!

- Shut up!

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Get off.

- Hey!

- -Come on, get up.

Get up.

Stand up yourself.


Hey! Do you wanna

walk the line? Hmm?

No, sir.

- Sorry, sir.

- Yeah. Pussy!

Leave the class.

Start it off.

I pledge allegiance to the flag

of the United States of America.

There is no before.

There is no yesterday.

There is only today.

And today,

I prepare for tomorrow.

Today, we're going to learn

how to find clean water.

The single most important thing

you need to live is water.

If you're resourceful,

know where to look,

you can find it, collect it, go drink

your water just about anywhere.

If you're lost in the wild, chances

are you'll be exerting yourself.

And you may be in a hot

or cold environment.

Hey, what are you doing?

Getting supplies.

- Hold up.

You're wanted back at the class.

- Get to class!

- Yes, sir, brother, sir.

All right, everybody.


So how many of you all

ever been to a hospital?

Any of you all

ever break a bone?

Okay, listen.

Tell me what it's about.

All right.

That was three bells.

- That was three, right?

- Yeah!

Let's see who it is.

The rules are the rules.

One of us has broken the rules.

One of us has something

they shouldn't have.

This doesn't

belong here anymore.

He turned his back on us,

so we turn our backs on him.

Bring him out.


It's your turn

to judge a rule breaker.

The line.

Hey, hey, hey, hey.

You made a choice.

You can't be here anymore.

We live together here, or we

fend for ourselves out there.

I'm sorry.

Once you walk through to the

other side, you can't return.

You leave the way you got here,

with whatever

you carried on your back.

It's fear that keeps us here,

fear of what's out there.




These things exist here too.

Oh, dude. I wish it was that

guy from the first period.


Did you see that? He nearly

actually pissed himself.

Oh, shut up! You'd shit yourself

if you walked the line.

Hey! Jesus!

Where the f*ck have you been?

Why, did you miss me?

- Miss you?

- What?

Hey, come on, bro.


Your dad will be

home in a sec, Willie too.

Go finish your homework.

I did.

You're a horrible liar.

Sit down.

How's school?

The same. How's work?

Same. Smart ass.

Want to trade?

Not a chance.

Hey! You on your way?


stop fucking around. What?

Where? What...

What are you talking about?

Martin, I'm listening, I...

I just don't understand.

What happened?



Got him. You see that?

Jack needs to walk this line.


You see that?

Hey, f*ck you.

Trigger line.

Bait stick.


Remember them,

they're important.

In case you run into one,

you're gonna have to learn

how to dismantle
