The Last Survivors

Synopsis: At the edge of an expansive barren valley, all that remains of The Wallace Farm for Wayward Youth is a few hollowed-out husks of buildings. Seventeen year-old Kendal (Haley Lu Richardson) can barely recall when the Oregon valley was still lush. It's been a decade since the last rainfall, and society at large has dried up and blown away. Kendal and the few others that remain barely scrape by, while dreaming of escape. When a greedy water baron lays claim to what little of the precious resource remains underground, Kendal must decide whether to run and hide or bravely fight for the few cherished people and things she has left.

Maybe the cap you started

with was too thick?

We have time. We'll find one that fits.

...night, but it's not gonna last.

I'm thirsty.

My tongue's swollen up bad.

I never thought our hiding place

would outlast our well.

Is anyone out there?

Can anyone answer me?

Can you hear me?


Hey, stairs!

I'll check the attic.


That's nothing.

Pump's busted.

There's no water here.

- Hey, what about...

- Let's just go.



Thank you.

Is anyone else with you?

The others...

they left you here?


You could rest here a while.

I mean, you can't just walk

out of the valley.

- Even if you aren't injured.

- I'm tryin' to walk out of the valley.

My sister's on the far side.

I just... I just need...

enough water to...

to make it to my sister.

She isn't well.

You can't stay here either.

I'm okay. I have my plan.

They're always hunting.

If you stay put, they'll find you.

Or your well will go dry,

whichever's first.

They're hunting in the south.

It's safer to go north.

Keep it.


Stay lucky.

I'm good.

Where's Dean?

Hunting up some food.

He's gettin' worse, isn't he?


Remember when this was all rice paddies?

Catching all those frogs.

Do you think it'll ever rain again?

So, you found a wreck?

Yeah, just outside the pumping field.

It's new.

Two, maybe three weeks.

Should be able to find somethin'.


You know I can help you.

Heard Island.

All that cold water.

That's a good spot then.

The plane lands on a bright green field,

pumping lightly along until it comes to

a rest next to a low stone wall...

built hundreds and hundreds of years ago

by the earliest explorers.

There's a stone building not far

in the distance

with a cold stream connecting

the snowcap mountains above

to the blue-gray sea below.

And if you wipe the steam off the cockpit window,

you can see penguins and sheath piles

and elephant seals

covering the black beach.

...I'm scared.

Can anyone help?

I'm on the Dover farm.

And someone is outside.

He's got a mask.

I'm so scared.

Can anyone help?

What's goin' on?

Someone's at the Dover farm.

You shouldn't go.

You always did. You'll be okay without me.

It's not me I'm worried about.

Stay lucky.

...I'm scared.

I'm so thirsty.

Please give me some...

Our well has gone dry.

We have no more water.

There are others hiding out there.

Parasites, drinking my water.

Pick up the radio and try again.

Please let these go.

Pick up the radio and call out again

or I'll have these two shot.

- People used to show mercy.

- Wells go dry.

People change.

There's no more farms.

There's no more farms.

They're all done in. Please!

We don't want to kill her.

There's a man of God in here.

We're not gonna hurt you.

You must be thirsty.

They're always thirsty.

Give her some of my water.

Come On.

It's Carson. It's Carson!

It's a trap! It's a trap! Ow...

This is a fine house.

My grandfather always admired it.

Search it.

Then on to the next. We're finished here.

They're like rats...

eatin' a sandwich.

You! Keep tearing this farm apart.

We'll take the kitchen.

Look how sweet, father.

Someone's closed her eyes.

Pray for her, Cadiz.

Pray for each of these desperate,

thirsty souls.

You'd think after ten years of no rain

they'd give up.

There can't be many left.

But we're gonna hunt them...

from dry well to dry well.

If they're alive...

they're consuming my water.

They can't consume my water...

without my consent.

Distributor cap didn't fit.

I wouldn't let them follow me here.

You know that, right?

Not like we want anything with you anyways.
