Set in the Wasteland of a post-apocalyptic parallel future of 1997, an orphaned teenager named The Kid is scavenging for relics when he befriends a mysterious girl. Yet, when she is kidnapped by Zeus, the tyrannical leader of the Wasteland who murdered The Kid’s parents, The Kid must face his ultimate destiny: destroy Zeus, avenge his parents’ death and get the girl of his dreams.
