In an energy-starved future, Richard Hampton’s world is blown apart when his younger brother Danny disappears and the police are too busy trying to keep a lid on a hungry, overcrowded city to join in the search.
Desperate to find Danny and his dog, Zonk, Richard and his curmudgeonly uncle, Jim Keller, who once ‘rode the rails’, jump the Food Train for the disintegrating wasteland that was once suburbia. Keller is shot while trying to jump from the train, leaving Richard alone and helpless in the wilderness. Richard presses on, retracing Danny’s steps by deciphering entries in the boy’s enigmatic journal.
Captured by a community of outcasts, Richard is branded a criminal and condemned to death. He’s rescued by streetwise Carrie, who joins in his search. As they trek across the remnants of civilization, facing criminal gangs, renegade militias, and the hardships of the road, their friendship evolves into something more.
They discover that Danny has ties to a psychopathic gangster named Crack, who they pursue to a deserted complex in the remotest corner of the sprawling suburbs. There they learn that Danny has stumbled on an incredible secret that will alter their lives and their world forever. To rescue Danny, Richard must battle Crack, who is desperate to get his hands on what Danny has found.
