Synopsis/Details: 

A young woman named November travels across the fractured country looking for clues as to who caused the destruction. Along the way she meets members of a US army divided, power hungry politicians, a paramilitary group, innocent civilians and more. The mysteries start to unravel and we may not like the secrets we find.

This isn't just an idea. This is a series and I have the whole story laid out. You will know on day one what will happen in the final episode and exactly what you need to get there.
