Set in the title year, ‘2149: The Aftermath’ follows a Darwin, who lives, like everyone else, in a small cement module with little more than a computer, which he uses for everything. Verbal communication has died out, but he often instant messages his mother. Darwin is fearful of the outside world, which is widely believed to be contaminated.

One night, during a violent storm, lightning hits Darwin’s module, which knocks out his computer. So he’s forced to do the unthinkable and go outside into the vast expanse of landscape.

During his journey, Darwin’s surprised to come across a beautiful young woman named Dara (Gosselin), living with her family, in a cottage in the woods. They teach him how to speak and show him the value of actual human contact. He’s compelled to journey forth and share the knowledge of his new found life with his mother, who’s still trapped, but it may be too late for her.
