The Cleansed – Episode Zero

The Cleansed Audio Drama Pilot(Speculative Fiction)

Some time in the not so distant future, the world as we know it is starting to unravel. The United States is mired in unwinnable wars, gas is scarce and the transportation system grinds to a halt. Homegrown terrorists take out the electric grid.

Food is strictly rationed and distributed by the military. As citizens grow increasingly angry with the government, martial law is called in to maintain peace.

And then things really start to get bad.

The city of Bangor, Maine becomes the epicenter of the apocalypse as the world collapses in a great event later to be known as “The Breaking.”
