Description

The world as we know it has been forgotten. A decade after a global epidemic, those who remain suffer the lasting effects of the virus: retrograde and anterograde amnesia. These survivors navigate a decaying landscape, unable to recall the past or create new memories. Each finds his or her own way to cope with life in a perpetual present, where meaning must be experienced moment by moment. A boy loses his guardian and searches for a new home beyond the limits of the city. Two lovers struggle to stay together, afraid that if separated, they will forget each other forever. A violent young man takes what he needs to survive, no matter the cost. A professor researching a cure makes a connection that is not what he expected. And deep underground, a girl living with her father in a bunker safe from the virus must decide whether to risk infection to regain her freedom.

In its vision of a world without memory, EMBERS asks us to consider whether our humanity is the one thing that is impossible to forget.
