The Day is a terrifying look, over the course of 24 hours, into a post-apocalyptic future as a group of five survivors—armed with shotguns, axes and machetes—wander the back roads of a ravaged landscape looking for refuge.

A deadly war has ravaged humanity, destroying civilization and most of life on earth. The survivors realize they must do whatever it takes to stay alive. Lost, starving, and exhausted, they seek shelter in a seemingly safe, abandoned farmhouse. However, while searching for food and resources, they unwittingly set off a trap signaling to their ruthless predators lying in wait to begin their deadly attack. With food and ammunition dwindling, the group must make a desperate, final stand, battling for their ultimate survival.
