This one's about two kids who survive a nuclear apocalypse in basement bomb shelters and crawl out later to grow up on their own amid a world in which nature is rapidly overtaking the rubble that came before. And then they finally meet and fall in love. It's sort of Island of the Blue Lagoon meets The Day After, except neither as cheesy as the former nor as immediately bleak as the latter. That said, there are darkening clouds on the horizon at the end, and the mix leaves what is going to happen largely unanswered.

This mix will be packaged in a two-panel custom-built cardstock case.
