Like animals, they are farmed, harvested for the sick pleasure of the Master Race. Almost, but not all. Somewhere out there, hiding for their lives, a desperate network of free humans continue the seemingly hopeless resistance. Everyday people, with no other options - among them Dr. Ephraim Goodweather, his son Zack, the veteran exterminator Vassily, and former gangbanger Gus.
