Synopsis / Plot
Scientist Zac Hobson wakes up one morning to find himself completely alone. As he searches it becomes increasingly apparent that he is the only man left alive in the world. Everybody else has just vanished, even in the midst of activity – jugs left boiling, vehicles still running, a plane crashed with all the seatbelts still done up. Investigating he finds the activation of Operation Flashlight, a project he was working on to set up a worldwide energy grid, has caused a fundamental change in the basic structure of matter. Wandering alone, his sanity travels between euphoria and despair at his isolation. But then he meets another survivor – a girl, Joanne – and they become lovers. That is until the appearance of a third survivor, Api, an aggressive Maori, which creates a triangle of tensions.
