The show takes place six years after a brutal virus has wiped out almost all of the human population, and follows two Danish siblings as they emerge from a safety bunker and set out on a danger-filled quest with other survivors.
According to Netflix, the additional synopsis reveals, "Free from their collective past and societal rules the group has the freedom to be who they want to be. -- In their struggle for survival, they discover that even in a post-apocalyptic world there’s still love, jealousy, coming of age and many of the problems they thought they’d left behind with the disappearance of the world they once knew."
