In The After

They hear the most silent of footsteps.
They are faster than anything you've ever seen.
And They won't stop chasing you...until you are dead.

Amy is watching TV when it happens, when the world is attacked by Them. These vile creatures are rapidly devouring mankind. Most of the population is overtaken, but Amy manages to escape—and even rescue “Baby,” a toddler left behind in the chaos. Marooned in Amy’s house, the girls do everything they can to survive—and avoid Them at all costs.

After years of hiding, they are miraculously rescued and taken to New Hope, a colony of survivors living in a former government research compound. While at first the colony seems like a dream with plenty of food, safety, and shelter, New Hope slowly reveals that it is far from ideal. And Amy soon realizes that unless things change, she’ll lose Baby—and much more.
The world as you know it has ended. For Amy, she was watching television when it happened, when the world was invaded by aliens and ended her life as she knew it. Her father was assumed dead, and her mother was protected, but still unsure whether she was alive. Amy was left alone, but after a few days she stopped wallowing and stepped up. She adapted. She lived.
She survived.
Day in, day out, a day at a time but she's here, she's still alive.
She doesn't know who else is still alive, and for all she knows, she's the last human on earth.
Slowly, she starts seeing more and more survivors and meets Baby, a toddler in the supermarket and takes her under her wing.
They start living.
