Anywayz, a plague basically wiped out mankind and many of those left are mutated into horrible beastly killing machines. The group of survivors we meet have been primitive for enough generations they don't have knowledge of the old world; basically they are pretty cave people. They hide inside an area they deem safe from the plague and the mutants and know little of the outside world. I think there must have been some climate shifts as well because they all sound British but its the warmest, prettiest PA Britain I have ever seen. One hunting group strays too far and brings back the mutants and the plot establishes as the young & brave have to go on a quest to bring back a cure for their village before all become monsters in sub-par makeup.
It is a very basic plot, as my favourites of this genre often are, about travelling to the unknown land, surviving its dangers, locating the object of the quest and bringing it back to save the day. Very fantasy-based, very Hero's Journey. Sean Bean is here as a source of knowledge, a once-member of a group of skilled explorers and plague detectors, aware of the cure as well as a collector of the old world. He directs the young ones, a mentor of sort, and draws out the needed heroism in them. While very very TV low budget, as many of this genre are, it was still not as bad as most of the 80s & 90s examples.
