After the destructive attacks in Defensive Instinct, the group of survivors living by the sea needs to rebuild. Having lost over half their living space and all of their crop land, the future is one of slow starvation. Seeing no other choice, the leaders decide to send out most of their able-bodied, either to scavenge, or make contact with other groups and ask for aide. But the road is a dangerous place, travelled by both the living and the dead. Not everyone out in the world is friendly, or even sane. Meanwhile, left behind with few adults, the children begin an intensive training regime, without realizing how little time they have to get ready. For vengeance is coming their way, and it cares not about age or hunger.
