One night, sounds of explosions broke the silence. It seems that a kind of mushroom sick goes to the human body and changes their genetics and make them to Wild people eater. Joel, his brother Tommy, and Sarah want to escape from the city but the city was surrounded by Armed Soldiers and in the middle of the way, Sarah is shot by one of the soldiers and dies in her father's arms. 20 years later, when many people have died by this disease, the survivors live in a quarantine area. Joel, with his friend Tess, do smuggle in that area but a person named Robert has stolen their weapons. After the fights that they do with Robert, Robert tells them that he has gave the weapons to a group called Fireflies.
